MFL MarMac Preschool

Home of the Bulldogs

MFL MarMac offers both 3-year old preschool and 4-year old preschool programming at the Monona campus in addition to on-site childcare services at the Little Bulldog Daycare Center. Students participating in our preschool programming are exposed to purposeful and productive learning experiences that help them grow in all areas. The goal of our preschool programming is for our students to become independent, self-confident, and curious learners who work well with others.

Our preschool classrooms are staffed with state-certified teachers in early childhood and early childhood special education. Each classroom is also staffed with a paraeducator.  Additionally, we provide an inclusive preschool experience for all students, including those with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

Tuition: MFL MarMac does receive a state-wide grant to assist the school with tuition costs for the 4-year old preschool program.  This grant helps to reduce the cost of tuition for students to $75 per month, beginning with the month of September.  Tuition can be paid each month online through the JMC Parent Login or by providing a check written out to MFL MarMac.  Checks can be given to the classroom teachers or the business office.

One of the requirements for the statewide grant is for each teacher to schedule a home visit.  This visit is to gather information about students’ interests and strengths, and to make your acquaintance.  Parents/guardians hold valuable information about their child that can be helpful for our programming.  Your child’s teacher will be contacting you about a possible visit date/time.

Breakfast/Lunch:  School provided breakfast and lunch will be available for your child.  Application for free and/or reduced meals are available through the JMC Parent Login account online.  Please strongly consider completing the application as this helps the school apply for grants.  All information is kept confidential and you will be notified immediately after submission as to whether or not your family qualifies. 

JMC Parent Login:  If you do not have a JMC parent account set up, or have lost or forgotten your login credentials, please contact our office for assistance by calling (563)539-2032 or emailing enrollment@mflmm.k12.ia.usSplit parent families are provided separate accounts.

Transportation: 4-year old preschool students are able to ride the school bus to and from school.  If your family is not currently listed on the school bus route, please contact our transportation director, Trent Miene, at (563) 539-2139 to request a bus stop at your house.
