Pre-K Update for the 2024-25 School Year

Through the district’s Rebuilding Stronger plan, IPS enhanced access to our Pre-K program by redistributing seats across Zones to ensure that you, as parents, have more Pre-K options closer to your home.

Our Pre-K program, which serves children turning 4 years old on or before August 1st, is  developmentally appropriate, offering play-based experiences that support physical, emotional, intellectual, and social growth.

New for the 2024-25 School Year:

  • Qualifying for the OMW Pre-K voucher is not a requirement, but applying for it is required. 
  • The application for OMW Pre-K opens April 1 – May 1, 2024. However, this does not prohibit families from applying for a Pre-K seat on Nov. 1, 2023, when the enrollment window opens for the 2024-25 school year. 
  • Families who receive a Pre-K seat for the 2024-25 school year will be guaranteed a Kindergarten seat at the same school for the 2025-26 school year.

Don’t forget … Enrollment for the 2024-25 school year begins Nov. 1.

Enrollment must be completed through the two-round Enroll Indy OneMatch App at
