(ABC 6 News) --  In 2011, Governor Mark Dayton first proposed the idea of early childhood program scholarships in Minnesota.

Now, the program is helping thousands of kids to go to preschool.

Rochester Public Schools was awarded just over $80,000 in 2014.  Organizers confirmed they've received funding for next year so the program can continue on in the future.
