Enrolling your student into a strong preschool program can help your them develop intellectually and socially; strengthening their confidence, enhancing their interactions with their peers and opening their minds to self discovery. IPS proudly offers 20+ unique preschool sites across the district; although the initial lottery has already been processed, we still have several seats available. Over 300 families have already secured their spot in the IPS family for the 2016-2017 school year and we are happy to welcome more blossoming scholars. 
“On behalf of the district and Office of Enrollment and Options, we encourage families to apply for our preschool program that provides a progressive curriculum at no cost – come build a long lasting partnership with IPS and build a strong foundation for your child,” says Angela Wilson, Enrollment Specialist. 
 To be eligible for an IPS preschool (also known as PreK) for the 2016-2017 school year, students must be four years old by September 1, 2016. Families must live within the district and provide their own transportation to school. The lottery application window closed on January 25 – Remaining seats available after lottery assignments are complete will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Families that have been granted a seat within one of our preschool programs will be notified next week. 

You can access our preschool application online. When enrolling a new student, families are required to submit the following information:

  • Student’s birth certificate
  • Complete and up-to-date immunization records
  • Proof of residency (a utility bill with your name and address will suffice)

You may submit these documents in person or by email; our enrollment specialists will contact you to complete the final steps in the process.
