BOTTINEAU, N.D. (AP) — Economic development officials want a privately run day care center at Dakota College in Bottineau.
North Dakota's Board of Higher Education will consider the request Thursday. The board is meeting in Williston.
Bottineau Economic Development Corp. director Diane Olson says the center would be almost 9,000 square feet. It would be able to care for 42 children.
Olson tells the Minot Daily News the center would be located on state-owned land on the east edge of Dakota's College's campus. Its construction, operation and maintenance would be privately financed.
North Dakota university system chancellor William Goetz says child care is a growing need at North Dakota's public colleges.
