The local daycare affiliated with a major chassidic group will only take a child if the parents commit to having the child continue in the group's school.

Is one allowed to knowingly deceive the daycare to ensure a spot?

[I am not very happy with the formulation of this question. Please edit!]

How's this formulation: May I lie to trick others into giving me stuff? – Double AA Dec 24 '13 at 19:03
@DoubleAA Some people will use foil products once, then toivel them to use them again, while claiming to Hashem that they changed their mind from single to multiple use. May one use similar trickery towards people? – Adám Dec 24 '13 at 19:11
"How's this formulation: May I lie to trick others into giving me stuff?" @DoubleAA you mean "selling me stuff at the same fair price they sell it to others at", I think. – msh210 Dec 24 '13 at 19:26
Also I do not see why it matters whether it is a major Chassidic group or if it is a private individual? – Gershon Gold Dec 24 '13 at 19:58
Putting on hold by request of asker (and because I was tempted to anyway). – msh210 Dec 24 '13 at 20:47
