Green Isle EDA – Child Care Shortage Project

Clover Kids Childcare Coming Soon

PRESS RELEASE –

Green Isle EDA is working to address Sibley County child care shortage
Data provided by First Children’s Finance shows that Sibley County has a childcare gap
of 379 slots. An article in Prairie Business Magazine by Editor Kris Bevell states that “if
employees can’t find quality care for their children, they won’t work for you. They won’t move
to our community, or they’ll be forced to move away, or they might have to consider quitting
their job to stay home with their children because they have no other option.”

The Green Isle EDA is working to address the childcare shortage in Sibley County. The
EDA is considering offering 8 to 15 child care slots, but we would like to know the demand for
childcare before pursuing this project.

  If child care slots become available in Green Isle would you be interested in bringing
your child to Green Isle? The hours of operation would be 6 am to 6 pm; located in the Green Isle Community School.  The Daycare Center will be called “Clover Kids Childcare”.  Please visit Green Isle Community School for more information –  greenislecommunityschool.org/preschoolclover_kids.aspx

  Please contact Green Isle EDA Director Amy Newsom at 507-237- 4117 or
CommunityDevelopment@co.sibley.mn.us for additional information. We will need to have a
minimum of 8 on the list to move forward with this project.
