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 for four half days, Monday through Thursday.
We are accepting applications for typical children beginning December 5, 2022, through January 31, 2023. After the January 31st application deadline, a lottery will be conducted to fill openings. Tuition is $180 per month. (Children currently enrolled as a typical in the 2022-23 school year must submit an application to be automatically enrolled for the 2023-2024 school year.)
*You will receive an email by February 28, 2023, to confirm the status of your child's enrollment. Please call Janice Diller at 419-586-6628, ext. 221 with any questions.
