December 6, 2023

First Children’s Finance conducted a Child Care Study on Pine County in 2022. The study identified childcare challenges in Pine County and noted that there is a shortage of 300-364 child care slots in Pine County, with 150 of those needed in Hinckley and another 18 in Finlayson.

Pine County, in collaboration with the Hinckley-Finlayson Independent School District, the City of Hinckley, the Initiative Foundation and Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures, is seeking an experienced childcare center developer(s) to assist in the establishment of two new childcare centers, one at a specific site in Hinckley and another at a specific site in Finlayson.
