PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

One Perrysburg elementary is added several new preschool classes where children will be cared for all day.

Starting next year, four classrooms will be added to St. Rose Catholic School. They will be state-of-the-art and equipped with smart boards, but the classrooms aren't the only things expanding.

Right now, St. Rose preschool is only half a day and housed in a separate building. The new program will be a full day, increase enrollment and call for an additional teacher. Next year, there will be four classes for 4-year-olds, three for 3-year-olds and a mixed class for four 4- and 5-year-olds all under the same roof as the elementary school.

It's all in an effort to better serve parents and allow students more access to the main building.

"Now they have to cross a parking lot and in bad weather, getting 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds all bundled up is not easy," said Principal Barbara Janks.

The renovations have already been funded by parishioners. An open house is scheduled for St. Rose this Sunday.
