Child Care

The JDA recognizes the importance of early childhood education not only from an educational and community perspective, but from an economic one as well. Child care is the 10th largest occupation in North Dakota, employing over 6000 residents.  More than $123 million in revenue has been generated in the child care industry alone.

The JDA recognizes that transitioning to a new community involves many decisions, and child care and family-friendliness are of significant importance to any relocation.  Parents want to know that their children will have high-quality and affordable child care services, and the local business community wants to know that its current work force members have the support and services they need to be productive members of the community.

According to ND Labor 2001 statistics, “Revenues from Child Care were comparable to the gross state product generated by coal mining, motor vehicle equipment manufacturing, and insurance agents, broker, and services.  Child care revenues exceeded the contributions of industries such as legal services and printing and publishing. Nationwide, preschool teachers, teacher assistants, and child care workers accounted for almost 78% of wage and salary jobs.”

The JDA of Rugby has helped many individuals with grants and assistance in securing a child care business in the city of Rugby, and we have also formed a Child Care Association that meets every month at the JDA office to discuss new ideas and keep an ongoing forum and communication channel open between child care workers and parents in the community.  In this way, we continue to offer the highest care available, and thereby pave the way for a brighter future for our children.
