Dayton’s updated budget plan includes free preschool


Gov. Mark Dayton’s revised state budget proposal includes free, all-day preschool for the state’s 4 year olds.

If approved the Legislature, Minnesota could become among the first state in the country to provide free preschool.

In the first year it would pay for an estimated 47,300 preschoolers to attend an all-day program and then expand to 57,000 students when fully up and running, according to the governor’s office.
