Enroll / Get on Our Waitlist

Q: How early should I start thinking about getting on the waitlist?

A: As soon as possible, at least 18 months before you plan on starting at Small Faces.

Q: How do I get on the waitlist?

A: The first step is to schedule a tour so you can decide if Small Faces is the right fit for your needs. To schedule a tour please email Kathy Brockman. Tours are held by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 am. Afterwards, you need to make a $100 non refundable deposit to get on the waitlist.

Q: How long is the waitlist for X class?

A: Most classes at Small Faces have a wait of 1 year to 18 months before we will be able to enroll your child.

Q: How do you determine my child’s place on your waitlist?

A: Small Faces uses the following priorities to determine waitlist order.

  1. Siblings of currently enrolled children will be given open spaces first.
  2. Families who have subsidized care will be prioritized on the waitlist
  3. Making sure that children of only one gender are not over-represented will be prioritized.
  4. Filling our two youngest classrooms to have between two thirds and three fourths children who will be 3 years old before December 15th of the year that they are enrolled will be prioritized.
  5. The date on which a family placed their deposit will determine waitlist order after the other priorities are taken into account.

We have chosen these priorities in order to create a classroom experience that is: equitable, promotes community and supports quality educational environments for children.  The dynamic nature of this prioritization means that families may move up or down the waitlist as new children are added.
