A Smart Start for the Next Generation

There are so many reasons to raise your kids in the Southern Valley area; one being the abundance of forward-thinking opportunities for youth and peace of mind for parents.  Working families can rest easy knowing that North Dakota ranks as the third most-affordable state for childcare for an infant (don’t worry, this includes Wilkin County). For a two-parent middle class household, its costs roughly nine percent of the average income in North Dakota verses closer to fifteen percent in Minnesota.
