Doniphan Darlings Help Needed
Renovation invoices are starting to roll in and with our current donations, we are unable to cover all of the needed costs. In order to open the facility quickly, we are still seeking donations. Grant funding is being sought but unfortunately, most grants do help with the immediate need. Most grants are awarded the following calendar year (2022). If you are able to help donate, please visit our "How To Get Involved" link and select make a donation. Thank you for your willingness to help aid in meeting the need for child care in our county.
From Idea to Reality: The Evolution of Doniphan Darlings
After the closure of several county in-home daycares, a group of local philanthropists got together and discussed the possibility of moving forward with meeting the need and filling the demand of much needed childcare in our county. With the help of USD 111, the idea of utilizing the Highland grade school building as a daycare center became a reality. The Board Members of Doniphan Darlings are excited to get this underway and help local families have a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for their children while working out of the home.
Doniphan Darlings officially opened its doors to start serving the families in our community on July 11, 2022. What a long and hard process it has been to get our doors open and licensing completed to care for all of the children in our area but SO WORTH IT!!
