The majority of our students enter our program after their first birthday. If your child is one year old on or before August 31st then they are eligible for our one year old program. Little Gate does offer programming for students that are under a year old, however, space is limited and preference is given to McGehee faculty.

It’s never too early to apply to Little Gate. It’s always a good idea to fill out the online application at least one year prior to your desired entry date. Contracts are typically offered 6 months before the start of each school year.
While attending Little Gate is a meaningful way of joining the McGehee family, prior to entry into the “big school,” Pre-K through 12, we do require each child go through the McGehee Admissions process. Click here for detailed information about applying to Pre-K.
