SDSM& T LITTLE MINERS’ CHILD CARE CENTER CELEBRATES WEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD WITH OPEN HOUSE AND WEATHER BALLOON LAUNCH ON APRIL 23
The Little Miners’ Clubhouse Child Care Center on the SDSM& T campus will celebrate the Week of the Young Child ( April 19- 25) with an open house and a special weather balloon launch on Thursday, April 23. The open house will be held from 9: 00 a. m. to noon. At 10: 00 a. m. the Little Miners’ children will help Dr. Douglas MacTaggart, SDSM& T Atmospheric Sciences Research Associate, launch a special tethered weather balloon on the O’Harra Stadium Field.
Operated under a partnership with the Rapid City YMCA, the Little Miners’ Clubhouse provides year- round licensed child care to the SDSM& T and Rapid City community. Services are available on a full- time, part- time and drop- in basis. Programs are offered for infant through pre- school age children. Many of the educational activities at the Little Miners’ Clubhouse, which opened in August 1996, emphasize skills that are important later for a child’s math and science development. Many of the hands- on activities help to interest the children in science and numbers.
For additional information, contact the Little Miners’ Clubhouse at 394- 2586.
