The North Dakota Child Care Action Alliance (NDCCAA) is seeking solutions that balance the needs of families, child care workers, providers and local businesses.

“NDCCAA believes a better child care system is in reach of North Dakota. To get there, we must hear from the community and focus on long-term solutions,” NDCCAA said in a statement.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
