New day care uses method founded in Italy

(Continued)

MANKATO —

The building she found is that gray building you drive by if you’re heading north toward Kasota on Third Avenue, just past Pilgrim’s Rest Cemetery.

It was built to house Lime Township’s school, but within a few years, Lime students were brought into the Mankato district. Later it was used by All-American Foods as a food-testing site. It had been dormant for years until Webb came along.

She spent hundreds of hours getting it ready for a day care, working days as a nanny and spending her nights and weekends getting Here We Grow ready.

“I wouldn’t put that much work into it if I didn’t believe in kids,” she said.

The facility sits on 1.5 acres and has a large fenced-in outdoor play area.
