The growth western North Dakota is experiencing comes along with the need for more services--such as child care to accommodate expansion.
That's where the Wolf Pup Daycare is stepping in.
Bonnie Campo take us inside Watford City's newest child care provider.
For $196 dollars a week, children at the Wolf Pup Daycare get a lot. A hi-tech security system, personalized bathrooms and a facility geared to early-childhood stimulation. It all started because of a child-care disparity.
(Katie Walters, Wolf Pup Daycare) "The need has been estimated, this last one, was about 1,000 children need day care in this area. Between infants all the way from through after-school care for children."
Wolf Pup's will provide care to 190 children, giving parents a choice to get back into the workforce.
(Katie Walters, Wolf Pup Daycare) "There is so much development going on, and so many things developing, and so many people needed to fill those positions, and we just didn't have the resources to be able to provide working parents with day care. This is starting down that path.
They have created a few jobs too.
(Katie Walters, Wolf Pup Daycare) "We were afraid we would have all the children we wanted enrolled, but we would not have enough teachers to teach them, and care for them. It has actually worked out pretty nicely for as many children as we have.
So what can you expect from Watford City's newest daycare?
(Katie Walters, Wolf Pup Daycare) "Parents should feel that they are fully protected, well-cared for, well-fed and loved here."
The daycare opens this weekend and there are 82 spots still open for enrollment. In Watford City, Bonnie Campo KX News.
The grand opening for Wolf Pup Daycare is this Saturday at 11 a.m.
