SD EARLY CHILDHOOD ENRICHMENT (ECE) SYSTEM
South Dakota’s Early Childhood Enrichment (ECE) system promotes the health, safety, and development of young children in early childhood programs. The ECE statewide training system was established to meet the growing demand for early childhood and school-age training and to help recruit and retain quality child care providers across South Dakota.
We provide early childhood and school-age education services and technical assistance. Services are available to all child care and after-school providers, parents and others involved in the day to day care of children and youth.
South Dakota has five different ECE sites located throughout the state. Take a look at the map below to find out which region you are in.
