With the influx of residents in western North Dakota, there is naturally an influx of children.
Unfortunately, there is an incredible shortage of child care providers.
Renee Townsend is holding review meetings for current and potential childcare providers to review a web portal that could potentially encompass all the information they need.
Townsend says that getting all of the necessary information in one place is first priority.
(Renee Townsend, STROM Center, Business Advisor) "When you search for the information, you might not go directly to the individuals that you need to meet with. And it might be a little bit confusing. So, something that's just very basic; these are the people you need to contact, this is where you need to start and these are your resources."
Townsend also says it is a great idea for stay at home Moms and Dads to get informed and get involved.
