Bottineau Day care

Posted: Updated:

After three years of developing and planning, rural and city residents of Bottineau will be getting a new day care this Summer.

Bonnie Campo has the story.

(Chuck Neubauer, President Economic Development Corporation) "Daycare is a big issue in Bottineau. Lot of our daycare providers that we use to have were in-home day cares, people that had been doing it for twenty years, and it just appended to be that a lot of them were retiring and getting out of that business."

Naubauer said that there was such a shortage that people were quitting their jobs to watch their children. However, population was another reason for the increase.

(Chuck Neubauer, President Economic Development Corporation) "Bottineau has seen some growth over the last ten years, and included in that was the number of families moving to the community, and just a bigger need for that kind of service."

The land the center sits on was donated by the Dakota College of Bottineau, but there are still expenses that have to be covered.

(Lindsey Guss, Owner of day care) "We have our Raising Our Community Campagin going on right now. The E.D.C will be owning the building, so there is a little bit of funding left to raise for the construction of the building, and then also the other piece of it is to furnish the building. Funitures, fixtures, tables, chairs, playground equipment, kitchen equipment, all the things you need to outfit the center."

Twenty-five thousand dollars has been raised, but the day care hopes to get to its goal of two-hundred thousand. Then it can begin providing its services to infants and adults.

(Lindsey Guss, Owner of day care) "Basically birth, through five or six. We will also do some Summer care for those kids who are in school during the school year, but need care during the Summer. We haven't realsed the rates just yet. There will be different rates based on age, and there are different ratios we have to follow."

There is not limit on the the number of kids per family that can enter the center, but the day care is allowed 51 children because of its size and number of staff. For KXNews I'm Bonnie Campo.

The center is already being welcomed as some are placing deposits and waiting lists are beginning to fill up.
