HUGE New Daycare/Early Childhood Learning Center Coming to Rochester!
There is an incredible daycare shortage in Rochester and, really, all over Minnesota. The YMCA in Rochester knows this...so they're going to open a 150 child Early Childhood Learning Center! Here's what we know...
- The Rochester Area Family Y is leasing what's been the Rosa Parks Charter High School, over on Valleyhigh Drive NW.
- This will NOT change programs at the Rochester Area Family Y.
- It's 12,000 square feet, so a big space that should really help make a significant impact.
- It will run year-round, offer lots of options, and will open for kids as old as five years, down to wee little six-week-olds.
- It's being modeled on the 10 already operating in the Twin Cities.
- They hope to be open in early 2019!
Joan Schimml, the Senior Director of Communications and Marketing for the YMCA Rochester/Greater Twin Cities, "98 percent of graduating YMCA Preschool & Pre-K students surpass local school district Kindergarten readiness requirements."
