Kidz Ark Day Care moves from Sidney, Mont., to Dickinson


When Betty Njos moved to Dickinson in October, she brought her day care, Kidz Ark, with her.

"The mothers can't work because there's no day care," she said. "I've had mothers say, 'Well, I guess I'll just stay home,' because they can't get day care."

The grandmother from Sidney, Mont., moved to Dickinson to be closer to family. Her daughter-in-law, Dawn Thiel, helps when she's not teaching at Head Start.
