Board approves daycare action 

Brown County Commissioners unanimously approved an update on family daycare licensing and recommended steps to meet future demands April 24. Childcare licensing workers presented a grant report, childcare licensing trends, samples of ways to show appreciation to providers and examples of a neighboring county/city approach to assisting county providers. A few years ago, a group of Brown County Economic Development Authority directors and others including industry recruitment personnel formed a county committee of about 15 people who applied for and received a $20,000 Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation grant to help with the crisis situation of lack of available daycare.
