Preschool Enrollment Information

It's Time!

Teacher reading to students

Enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year began March 1, 2022.

The Mt. Vernon Early Learning Academy Mini-Marauder Preschool is Mt. Vernon's preschool for the district. We provide services for children who are ages 3-5. The Mini-Marauder Preschool has a rolling enrollment. Students are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis. All enrollment materials and fees must be submitted to the preschool office for a child to be considered enrolled. Please print and complete the online enrollment or stop by the preschool to pick up a packet. MMP enrollment CANNOT be completed online. Students enrolling full-time will be given first placement. If there are openings, part-time requests will be accepted. Once classes are full, students will be placed on a waiting list.

Families should be sure to select the enrollment packet for the school year in which they are seeking services. Open enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year began March 1, 2022.


Students/Families Living in the District:

Living within the district boundaries enables students to automatically attend Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) schools. Preschool parents of new students who live in the district should register by printing the correct year's enrollment packet. Please bring the completed printed packet and the following items to the preschool when registering.

  • Copy of student's birth certificate
  • Copy of current immunization records 
  • Proof of residency within 60 days (bill with your name and address on it)
  • Driver's license or identification card
  • Copy of court papers if there is any custody arrangement
  • Individual education plan (IEP), if applicable
  • $50 registration fee


Out-of-District Students/Families:

The Mini-Marauder Preschool is closed to new out-of-district/transfer families for the 2022-2023 school year.  Please contact the Preschool office at 317-485-3100 with questions.


Out-of-District, Currently Enrolled Mini-Marauder Preschool Student

New for 2022, the family of any currently enrolled student who lives outside the Mt. Vernon school district and wishes to be enrolled in the Mini-Marauder Preschool during the 2022-2023 school year must have applied for the Out-of-District/Transfer online application (located on the Mt. Vernon website) during one of these two windows: Window 1  –  Friday, April 15 at 4 p.m. through Monday, April 25 at 8 a.m. or Window 2  –  Friday, May 6 at 4 p.m. through Monday, May 16 at 8 a.m.

All out-of-district students enrolled in the Mini-Marauder Preschool for the 2021-2022 school year will be accepted for the 2022-2023 school year, but families will need to fill out the Out-of-District/Transfer application for each child. 

As Superintendent Dr. Parker has previously shared, once you are a Mt. Vernon student/family, those students will remain part of the Mt. Vernon family. (Once students reach kindergarten, the only exception is if there are major discipline or attendance issues.) 


Out-of-District, Not Currently Enrolled in MMP but Siblings Enrolled in MVCSC

If a child is not currently enrolled in the Mini-Marauder Preschool and is out-of-district/transfer but he/she has a sibling or step-sibling attending any Mt. Vernon school, or, if a child’s parent/step-parent is a Mt. Vernon staff member, the child is NOT considered a new out-of-district transfer family. To be accepted for the 2022-2023 school year, the family must have needs filled out the Out-of-District/Transfer application during one of the two windows listed above and received an acceptance letter.
