Regular Admission: This is for a family who is considering a variety of preschool options. Your application will be entered on a lottery basis when there are more applicants than positions available. Student names are drawn one by one to fill the class. Waitlists remain active throughout the school year. This application is due February 2, 2024. Families will be notified of their enrollment by the 2nd week of February.
Priority Applications: Families who are returning, including siblings and legacy families, are considered priority applicants. Please submit your application by January 12, 2024 to secure a place in our school. Submitting an application guarantees a spot in one of our programs though it may not necessarily be your first choice. We will conduct priority family lotteries for classes with more applicants than available spaces.
Students new to the school will be admitted on a lottery basis when there are more applicants than positions available. Student names are drawn one by one to fill the class. Waitlists remain active throughout the school year. Lincoln Park Co-op's lottery system for student selection has been a hallmark of our school since the beginning. The lottery system, along with a strong Financial Aid system, results in a pool of diverse families committed to our school and our mission.
Admission into all programs provides families with membership to the cooperative in addition to priority for enrollment for returning students and siblings.
