Kids Kastle Little Miner's Clubhouse

We believe that while our SDSM&T students learn, their children do too. We also believe children learn best when they feel comfortable knowing that their parents are nearby on campus. Our Kids Kastle children experience success.

The program is designed to meet each child's needs, to foster development of competence in intellectual and social skills, and to provide a safe, nurturing environment. Curriculum is developed through extensive assessment, group goals, and the planning of appropriate activities.

Kids Kastle provides a high-quality early education and care program. Children are motivated by the activity centers and lesson plan activities. There is a designated learning program time from 9:00 - 11:00 every morning. Specific goals, themes, and developmental skills are emphasized during this time.

The center serves children four weeks to ten years old and is licensed through the South Dakota Department of Social Services for 72 children. Childcare assistance is accepted and some SDSM&T students may also qualify for a stipend through the university's foundation. It is open from 5:45 am - 6:15 pm, Monday through Friday, throughout the entire year.
