Waitlist Policy

We make a sincere effort to accommodate families who are interested in having their children enrolled at Little by Little. If at any time you find that our registration is closed, we recommend that you contact us to be placed on our waitlist. We regularly monitor openings and use the waitlist to inform families when availability opens up. Your position on the waitlist determines when you will get a call about an available opening. Please read carefully through the following information to ensure you understand our process, the choices and commitment involved.

We operate within a 10-month school-year calendar and enrollment term periods are as follows:


2019-2020 Year
Term 1 Aug 19-Oct 25 9 weeks Holidays (Closed)
Term 2 Oct 28- Dec 20 8 weeks Thanksgiving Day November 26th
Term 3 Jan 6- March 27 12 weeks Winter Break Dec. 23-Jan 5 2019
Term 4 Apr 6-May 29 8 weeks Spring Break Mar. 30- April 3 2020

2020-2021 Year

Annually, registration will open for the upcoming full year beginning on the first week of March. Priority for enrollment is as follows:

  • Already enrolled families (48 hours)
  • Educators’ children (48 hours)
  • Siblings of enrolled families (48 hours)
  • Waitlisted families (24 hours)
  • Open to public

All families must commit to enrolling for, at minimum, one entire term. Discounts will be calculated when a family enrolls for more than one, consecutive term. We will give each tier of enrollees a limited time to accept enrollment and submit their fee. This will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In order to be placed on our wait list, you must fill out our wait list registration form and submit a one-time, non refundable application fee of $200.

Our staff will personally call each family from the wait list (in the order of application) to fill our rosters. Once contacted, you will then have 24 hours to either accept or decline your spot. Since we have a flexible schedule created to fit each families unique childcare needs, we cannot promise that your preferred day(s) will be available, but we will do our best to consider your preferred days. If accepting, you must pay a 20% deposit for your per-term registration within that 24 hours to solidify your space in our class.
