Apple Tree Children’s Centers To Close Next Month

(Sioux Falls, SD) — Apple Tree Children’s Centers in Sioux Falls will be closing their doors in January. The daycare center made the announcement Thursday night in a letter sent to families. The letter points to staff shortages, inflation impacts, and occupancy costs that they say have resulted in financial losses as reasons for the closures. This comes on the heels of years of discussion surrounding the looming childcare crisis in the state of South Dakota. The decision now potentially leaves parents of more than a thousand children without options for care.
