The Early Childhood Programs are an integral part of Forest Lake Area Schools (FLAS). We work together to assure that children transition smoothly into kindergarten.
The program offers before and after school childcare, non-school days (NSD) and summer childcare. Fees are listed in the current fee schedule online. The program opens at 6am and closes at 6pm.
Adults of all ages are welcome to join Mindfulness Meditation - the ancient method of self-understanding and self-management. It is widely used for handling pain and stress, habit control, dealing with painful emotions and disturbing thoughts. It leads to deep self-knowledge and self-management skills that make life richer. The content of the practice is simply our own experiences of body and mind with no ideology. It is compatible with any religious and self-development practices. Please wear comfortable clothing. The teaching is cumulative, so attendance at all meetings is encouraged. You will be provided with a link prior to class.
