Consistent with The Little School’s focus on families, siblings receive special consideration in admissions and form the core of a class.
Siblings applications should be submitted as early as possible. If we receive an application for a child within the first three months of his or her entry into a family, every effort will be made to guarantee a spot for that sibling in the desired year. If there are too many siblings for a particular class, the school and parents will problem-solve together. The director will make the final decisions.
If we receive an application after the first three months of a child’s entry into a family, we cannot guarantee a spot, but will give the sibling priority in the admissions process. While we have sometimes needed older siblings to wait a year, we have always been able to include siblings in our program at some point.
