2018-2019 Registration Information

Little Lions Preschool Registration Information

Due to the number of families of four year-old students that have had to be placed on a waiting list in the years past, we will not be offering preschool for three year-old students.  This will be effective for the 2018-2019 school year.  This change will allow the district to reach and prepare our four year-old students for kindergarten.

Linn-Mar’s Little Lions Preschool will hold their preschool registration on Tuesday, February 20th at noon for the 2018-2019 school year. Registration will be held online, computers will be available at the LRC building at 2999 North 10th Street in Marion for those needing assistance for registering their child(ren). Registration will consist of demographic information, child’s date of birth, session and location preference.

Once registration is submitted, it is time stamped to the exact second, for example; one family could submit their registration at 12:04:36 and another at 12:04:37 and so forth. Priority enrollment will be given to families that live in the Linn-Mar School District. 20% of the enrollment placements will be reserved for families that qualify as low-income for preschool openings. Preschool locations for the 2018-2019 school year will be at Bowman Woods, Echo Hill, Linn Grove, and Novak.


Letters of preschool placements will be emailed by April 1, 2018, notifying families of placement in preschool. The following forms and a non-refundable $45 supplemental fee are required for admission into the Little Lions Preschool program and can be mailed, faxed, or dropped off to the LRC.  Please make sure the cover page states “Attention Leisa Breitfelder” and each page is labeled with your child’s name and birthdate.

  • $45 supplemental fee
  • Proof of child’s date of birth (birth certificate, official medical records, etc.)
  • Copy of immunization records
  • Proof of residency
