2024-2025 Preschool Enrollment


We offer a variety of programming for children ages 3-5. To enroll, students must be three (3) years old by August 15, 2024. General education students who are age-eligible for kindergarten are not eligible to enroll in the Little Anchors Preschool Program.

Applying for enrollment is a three-step process:

  1. Obtain a preschool enrollment paper application—Available to print from the district website or available to pick up in the Vermilion Elementary School (VES) Office.
  2. Turn in the completed packet to the VES main office---All pages of the application and the $37 supply fee must be turned in for your application to be accepted. Once this step is completed, your child will be cleared for enrollment if space is available. The only exception to this is the physical form. The physical form (which requires a doctor's signature) is due before the first day of school. Physicals can be scheduled and completed at the Vermilion School-Based Health Center (567-867-5174 --See the attached flyer for additional information).
  3. Complete the online pre-registration at:
Please note: this step can only be completed AFTER step two is completed by turning in your paper application and supply fee to VES.

4.  Registration appointment: Once the pre-registration is complete, you will be prompted to set an appointment with the Registrar. The custodial parent or guardian must finalize the process by bringing the required documents to the Administration office. All of the required documents listed in the online instructions must be presented at the time of your appointment.  A preschool slot will not be secured until all the necessary documents are provided.  The only exception is the physical form. The physical form (which requires a doctor's signature) is due before the first day of school.  

Screenings for new preschool students will take place in August 2024. Parents will be contacted in early August to schedule a date/time.
