BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — With a shortage of day care in the Bismarck area, an electric cooperative and two hospitals are partnering with the YMCA on a child care facility.

Basin Electric Power, Sanford Health and CHI St. Alexius Health will get designated spots for their employees in the center being built in the former Rasmussen College building.

Youth Development Center Director Carmen Traeholt says the YMCA currently serves 200 infants and preschoolers and about 60 older children in after-school programs. But there’s another 400 children on a waiting list.

The new 18,000-square-foot center will accommodate 240 children, with 200 spots designated for employees of the three partners. Renovation will begin in the fall, with the facility scheduled to open in February. The center will provide 90 new jobs.
