To Assure Academic and Personal Success For Each Child



Thank you for your interest in the Murfreesboro City Schools Preschool Program.

The MCS Pre-K program is funded by a grant for low income or at-risk children. We serve four-year old children who are zoned for a city school.

Your child must be 4, but not yet 5, years old on August 15th, 2020.  A birth certificate, utility bill as proof of address, and proof of income will be collected along with a completed application.  Proof of income can consist of W2s for all adults in the household, a tax return for 2019 (the first two pages and the e-file signature page), or proof of participation in a public assistance program like SNAP.  Current multiple paystubs can be accepted but may require verification.

Our preschool classrooms will be located in several schools for the 2020-2021 school year. The school locations for the preschool classrooms will be based on the space available. We will continue to offer classrooms at our off-site location at Mercury Court. Children who reside within the Murfreesboro city limits and meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of your child’s zoned school, may be placed in a classroom based on location, zones, and proximity as long as space is available.

***Please follow the instructions for applying and guidelines for documentation carefully so that your application may be considered as complete.

All forms needed to apply, along with instructions for turning in the application, can be found at the tab on the left of this page titled Applications.
