WATERTOWN, S.D.–Earlier this week, a group of stakeholders held a news conference at Watertown City Hall to announce what they say is the first step in addressing a daycare shortage in the city.

The plan is to relocate Little Blessings Daycare from their current location at the Family Worship Center in Watertown into a facility at Harmony Hill that would more than double their size….

Justin Manzey is the Senior Pastor at the Worship Center…

He explains how the partnership with Harmony Hill came together…

But that’s a move that will cost in the neighborhood of $2.5 million. More details on fundraising will be released on May 15th at what’s being called a Child Care Town Hall Meeting at Lake Area Tech.
