Mercer County Educational Service Center
2020-21 Preschool Application

The Mercer County Educational Service Center operates preschool special education classrooms for children ages 3, 4, and 5 throughout Mercer and Darke Counties:  Celina, Coldwater, Marion Local, St. Henry, and Versailles. The Ohio Department of Education allows us to have eight children with special needs in the AM and PM and eight typical children in the AM and PM sessions, making a total of 16 children per session. Our preschool classrooms are in session four half days, Monday through Thursday. 

We are accepting applications for typical children beginning mid-December through March 1, 2020.  After the March 1 application deadline, a lottery will be conducted to fill openings. Tuition is $180 per month. (Children currently enrolled as a typical in the 2019-2020 school year must submit an application to be automatically enrolled for the 2020-2021 school year.)

*** The application window for the 2020-2021 school year is now closed. Please call Janice Diller at 419-586-6628, ext. 221, if you have any questions. ***

*You will receive an email by March 6th, 2020 to confirm the status of your child's enrollment.
