Before-School Visits: Preschoolers will visit for up to 6 sessions before officially starting school. Our Office Administrator will arrange these visits with you. During these visits, you can collect your enrolment forms, Information Book and student stationery from the Office.
These visits are set out as follows:
2 visits up to morning tea break
2 visits up to lunch break
2 visits for the whole day
These visits are designed to be spread out over 6 weeks with one visit per week on a set day. The day for preschool visits is a Thursday but can be changed to suit daycare or work commitments.
Little Bunnies Playgroup also offers school visits for 4 yr olds. These take place on Thursdays (even weeks) for 20 mins 10.10am - 10.30am.
New entrant children may start on or after their 5th birthday. Children will not be able to attend school until all paperwork has been completed and returned to the Office.

Enrolment Process - to enrol a student we will require:
A copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport (to confirm date of birth and NZ citizenship or residency)*
A copy of your child’s immunisation record (if applicable)
A copy of any court documents relating to access or custody (if applicable)
*A separate process is required for international students - please contact the school.
You will complete enrolment forms for the school, as well as for the WDHB Dental Service, and you will complete a Digital Citizenship Agreement for your child (regarding the safe and responsible use of computers, other IT devices and the internet).
All enrolment forms are available at the school Office. Please note: children will not be able to attend school until all paperwork has been completed and returned to the Office.
For children transferring from another school in New Zealand, we will contact that school to confirm that students have enrolled at a new school and request their academic information for our teachers.
