Yes! Mount Vernon City Schools has a preschool! We operate a preschool classroom located at the New Hope Early Education Center on Upper Gilchrist Road near the Health Department. We enroll children ages 3-4 as of August 1 of each year. Our programs are half-day sessions four days a week, Tuesday through Friday with one session in the morning and one in the afternoon. Our classroom is staffed with a veteran highly qualified teacher and teacher assistants. Students are educated in an inclusive setting with typically-developing children along with students with disabilities of various types. Our program fills very quickly, but if we have no openings in our preschool classroom, we will be happy to help you register for an equally high-quality preschool classroom operated by Knox County Educational Service Center or Head Start in the same building. Knox County Career Center also operates a public preschool, and there are several private preschools in town, as well.
