Truks N Trykes
Truks N Trykes celebrates child growth, development and learning in a creative atmosphere where you will feel like family. With over a decade in business, all of our facilities have an energetic, kind and happy staff to provide licensed care to your special little ones. The Truks-N-Trykes 2 philosophy is to provide an environment of love and learning that extends the mental, physical, and social development of children. Learning through play and exploration is encouraged within the TNT2 approach to early childhood education.
Jeremy and Misty Cotton were inspired to move to Sioux Falls with their family in 2007 to be lead teachers and assistant director at Truks-N-Trykes daycare. With a lifelong passion to educate and nurture, they both bring years of experience in the teaching field with them. Jeremy taught in the St. Paul private schools for 7 years and Misty’s experience ranges from multi-age childcare, coordinator for before/after programs to junior high English teacher. This married couple also raises three children-Andrew, Joseph and Kaylee.
They are very active in the community and enjoy personal and community enrichment by teaching Religious Education at their church, and are members of their school PTA and Booster club and Dakota Spirit.

“I love how the staff is genuinely concerned about the kids. I can’t be with my son 24/7 but I am glad that I have teachers who will take great care of him when I can’t. TNT2 has very compassionate, commendable staff who really enjoy what they do.”
“Being a parent and sending your little one to daycare can be a scary thing. I have never felt more welcomed as a parent to a daycare center and my daughter loves it at TNT2. The staff is REMARKABLE! Truks-N-Trykes 2 is a fantastic place. Knowing we had a safe place to send our daughter made our decision to add one more to our family even easier!”
