Kenesaw opens Child Care Center
KENESAW, Neb. -- A central Nebraska small town is celebrating getting a resource it has needed for the past 20 years.
The Kenesaw Child Care Coalition cut the ribbon Saturday on the town's new non-profit child care facility.
The Coalition was gifted the building from its previous owners, Kenesaw Methodist Church. The church also donated $110,000 to help jumpstart the renovation effort.
The non-profit also tallied another $600,000 in donations and grants to help fill a major need.
Coalition's members said they formed because Kenesaw Public Schools was losing quality educators because of the lack of available child care.
Day care officials said they're definitely filling a need, as evidenced by their waiting list in their infant room extending out to August of next year.
