I have actually done WAAAY too much info on this now. While there is no aborted fetal tissue IN the vaccine, it was culture in it and then cloned, etc. I just can't do them.

This is what I'm banking on, since by the time my sons go to kindergarten they will be up-to-date on all vaxes except for varicella.

But I did want to ask--if the preschool in question (or any school) is a private school, would they have to accept an exemption? They could just refuse admittance, correct? (I know a public institution cannot.)

If they accept gov't funds for anything, vouchers for attendance, lunch or afterschool program, etc. they have to accept exemptions. Most private schools get at least some funding from the government.
