First Children’s Finance has chosen Carlton County to participate in their Rural Child Care Innovation Program. The Rural Child Care Innovation Program is a community engagement process designed to develop right-sized solutions to address the needs of child care and early education for the communities selected to participate. 

Over an 18-month period, chosen communities will focus on opportunities and challenges they are facing with child care.
