ROCHESTER, Minn.- Thrive Child Care and Family Resource Center is opening its doors October 1st.
They’re a new organization in Rochester working to fill the need for more childcare in southeastern Minnesota.
“Infant care is really hard to find. Parents are calling the minute they get pregnant to look for childcare for their infants,” said the Thrive Executive director Tanya Goretzki.
Tanya Goretzki is the executive director at the center and tells KIMT they want to serve the community.
At Thrive they will help 82 families with childcare, ages five and under.
The business will also offer a family resource center with volunteer school phycologists, social workers and registered nurses available to help families through the ups and downs of life.
“We know that being a parent is a really hard job and sometimes you just need someone to talk to and sometime you need someone to help you connect to community resources,” said Goretzki.
Some of those services will be parent education and enrichment activities offered throughout the year.
