St. Francis of the Lakes Catholic School in Brainerd will expand its early childhood program to two preschool classes for the 2020-2021 school year.

Classes will be offered for 3- to 5-year-old students. During the present school year, staff and school leadership carried out research on an additional preschool class. Steps included a survey, space availability and program budget.

According to a news release, school leadership believes the expansion to two classes will be a benefit to the community at large and the preschool students.

“We are excited for this opportunity to expand our preschool program here at St. Francis Catholic School and believe that it will help meet the needs of the community. We offer a comprehensive curriculum that is faith-based with a fully trained and licensed staff who love being with young children,” said Principal Jen Nagel, in a news release.
