On-Line Child Care Survey is being conducted in Adams County through February 15th
For several years’ parents, employers, and child care providers have discussed the fact that there is a shortage of child care slots in our community, however more data is needed to get a better picture as to the specifics of the need and the feasibility of exploring additional child care options.   

Parents of children under the age of 13, as well as grandparents or family members having custody or guardianship of children this age as well as foster parents of children are asked to please take the time to complete the survey which will only take a few minutes of your time.  Please take the survey even if your children are not currently in child care, if you are expecting your first child or if you are considering becoming a parent in the near future.   

The survey link is The individual survey’s will remain confidential, but results will be compiled by an outside source and made available to the community in early March via the Adams County Record, KNDC and on www,

If you do not have access to the internet, hard copies of the survey will be available at the Community Promotions Office at 120 South Main Hettinger.  You can also call 701-567-3102 and request that a copy be mailed to you.  Employers will also be contacted and asked to encourage their employees to take the survey.

Deadline for taking the survey on-line or returning a hard copy is Sunday February 15th.

If you have questions please call Earleen Friez, local survey coordinator, at 701-567-3102 or email

The survey is part of a grant to the Rural Economic Area Partnership Investment Fund, a nonprofit organization, working towards making a difference through innovative community solutions. 
Local representative to the Rural Economic Area Partnership is Melana Howe and the county representative to the Southwest REAP is Jerel Seamands.

The grant is provided by the North Dakota USDA Rural Development Business & Cooperative Program.  Should the survey confirm the need for more child care in the area, additional training education and supports for community innovation will be provided under this grant. 
Child care is a regulated industry.  Providers don’t have the option of adding more children without possibly having to add staff to maintain child to adult ratio or create additional space.  Expanding the square footage or purchasing a larger facility is costly.  Employees, if needed are hard to find and retain and paying competitive wages and providing benefits often is cost prohibitive. 

Persons interested in the child care profession should visit Child Care Aware at or ND Child Care Professionals at
or contact the local child care licensor at 701-567-2967 in the Adams County Social Services office.
