Compassion Child Care opened its doors in April of 2012. The need for affordable childcare in downtown Sioux Falls was evident, but we were surprised at how quickly working-poor families began to reach out for help. Within six months, Compassion Child Care was full, providing services for ninety-two children ages five weeks to five years old. In 2017, we celebrated the fifth anniversary of our ministry and during this time we have served 198 children and ministered to 140 families by providing excellent childcare and connecting parents with counseling, job training and other resources. We have been amazed at God's goodness and we are excited for his future plans.
We will seek to embody the compassion of Christ in our interactions with all children, their parents, and the community. Our approach will be an intentional one, using every aspect of our daycare program (art, music, language, etc) to share the good news of Jesus Christ. We will strive to treat all children with the dignity, equality, and respect they deserve as children created in the image of God.
We exist to empower working-poor families with the means to access certified, comprehensive childcare at a price that enables them to stabilize their overall financial life. We provide scholarships to families in relation to their income and life circumstance.
We are a responsible partner in offering educational development to all children. We offer age-appropriate educational programs and set development goals for each child. We will communicate with parents regularly on educational and development goals.
Our desire is to see families flourish spiritually, physically, emotionally, and financially. Therefore, we seek to connect parents with resources to budget effectively, receive counseling, and meet additional needs they have. An unique housing program is also available for single mothers through CCC that provides a place for a mother and her child(ren) to be refreshed spiritually, physically, financially, and emotionally.
