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.
Plan now to be ready to compost yard waste! Composting is a microbial process that converts plant material such as grass clippings and leaves to a more usable organic soil amendment or mulch. Many homeowners are finding it convenient and economical to compost leaves and grass clippings in their own backyards. Learn how to build and maintain a compost pile including troubleshooting tips as well as how to use the completed compost in your yard or garden. This class will be taught as an interactive, online webinar through Zoom by a Master Gardener using University research-based information. Materials and Zoom link will be sent by email prior to the class.
