BOWMAN — Anyone that visits Tot-Lot Child Care will see a lot of happy faces, and not just from the children.

The 4,000 square-foot day care center in Bowman is a second home for approximately 60 children and 13 employees, including director Dee Dobitz. Children can be seen dancing to music, playing with toys and sleeping in a nursery in a spacious area.

But it wasn’t always like that, Dobitz said.

Hi. I'm the assistant editor of The Dickinson Press and I'll be your tour guide. I grew up on a ranch 10 miles southeast of Belfield, or 10 miles southwest of South Heart. I was right in the middle. Anyways, my family raises registered Hereford cattle on the ranch, where I learned a lot of valuable lessons. I went to school at Belfield Public School, graduating in the last class as the Belfield Bantams. I then double majored in communications and history/political science at Jamestown College. After three years of working for the now University of Jamestown's newspaper, The Collegian, I joined the staff at The Dickinson Press as the Dickinson City government and energy reporter. I moved on to the Hazen Star and Center Republican as an editor before being pulled back to Dickinson. And here I am. As someone that grew up and lived in North Dakota for 25 years, I never thought that our corner of the state would ever change. But time has a way of proving me wrong. In the midst of one of the largest oil booms that state has seen I get to watch it all and tell everyone about it. I can't wait to see what happens next.
