2021-2022 Registration Information
At noon on February 1, 2021, registration went live for the 2021-2022 school year. Registration was held online and computers were available at the LRC building at 2999 North 10th Street in Marion for those needing assistance for registering their child(ren). Registration consists of providing demographic information, child’s date of birth, and session/location preferences. In order to enroll in Little Lions Preschool, students need to be four years of age on or before September 15, 2021.
Once your online 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. You will receive a confirmation message, not email, that will inform you of additional paperwork that must be submitted for your child’s registration to be considered complete.
