Finding child care in the Upper Minnesota Valley Region, is a growing challenge. Statewide, professionals are coining this concern as an actual crisis. In response to the increased need of child care options, the UMVRDC has documented case studies to provide examples of regional child care facilities. Child care is considered an economic driver in our rural communities and these studies can provide guidance as to how individuals, communities, employers, etc have rolled up their sleeves in order to meet the needs of our local families.
Please view the examples below, we are currently working on other regional examples that we will be sharing as well.
