APPLYING FOR KINDY
Apply when your child turns two years old
Children start Kindergarten when they are four years old by 30 June. Our Kindy positions are advertised two years ahead and families are encouraged to apply when their child is two years of age, or younger.
Children can begin Pre-Kindy when they turn three years old. Offers for Pre-Kindy are made after a child is accepted for Kindergarten.
Use the calculator to check your child’s Kindy start date.
PLACES IN OTHER YEARS
Ask us about availability
At times, positions become available in other year groups – please get in touch and we will provide you with more information. We do our best to accommodate all siblings in a family moving school.
INTERVIEW WITH THE PRINCIPAL
Kindy interviews two years prior
Where possible, interviews include both parents and your child. If your family hasn’t visited the school before, we begin with a short tour. Kindy interviews are two years prior, generally starting in June. Interviews for places in other years are immediate.
DATE We will be in touch to arrange a date.
