Tri-Valley Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Has a New “Place” in Rochester!

Shelly Goddard (Program Design Manager) and Robyn Klemm (Assistant Center Manager) started working with the Child Care Resource and Referral and The Boys and Girls Club of Rochester, Minn. in 2004 to think of a way they could collaborate to serve all the kids and families in Rochester.  After nine years, all their hard work became reality and The Place opened on September 30, 2013 to serve kids birth-18 in Rochester. The facility includes a Head Start wing with rooms specifically designed for early childhood, a full-size gym, multipurpose room, industrial kitchen and much more.  Tri-Valley Migrant and Seasonal Head Start will have eight classrooms at The Place from June- December and plans to serve approximately 100 children in the facility. Goddard said the best thing about The Place is that, “It will serve children and families for generations.”  For more information about The Place visit
