(Spicer MN-) The Kandiyohi County YMCA Friday approved moving forward with creating a 90-slot child care center at The Green Lake Mall in Spicer.

...Carlson says they hope to be able to open this fall. Studies show there are about 700 kids in need of daycare in Kandiyohi County. The Y currently runs a 64-slot day care facility at the Kandiyohi County Health and Human Services Building in Willmar. The Y's Troy Pederson says there is so much demand that there is a 2-year waiting list. Dave Henle of Heritage Bank in Spicer is also a fundraising co-chair for the project...

...The new daycare will occupy the northeast corner of The Green Lake Mall. For more information on the fundraising campaign, contact The Y at 222-YMCA, that's 222-9622. You can also go to the Y's website.
