Enrolling your child

We take children from 2 1/2 years. However, we do require our children are toilet trained before joining us.

We invite you to come and visit our preschool. Make a time to meet our Manager and teaching team, take a look around and observe a classroom in action. Alternatively, if you are passing, feel free to call in and have a look around.

If you’re keen to join us, we encourage you to complete a pre-enrolment form as early as possible, to ensure a place is available when your child is ready to start.

Sessions and fees

We follow the primary school term structure with four terms each year, and an extended break in summer. We offer an optional holiday programme for our enrolled children in the first week of the holidays in terms 1, 2 and 3 and in the first and last week of the Christmas holidays.

We run a morning session from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Children staying on for the afternoon have lunch between 12:30 and 1.00pm, and then we continue with an afternoon session until 3pm.

For children under 3 years old, fees are $4.50 per hour

For children aged 3 to 5 years old, we offer 20 hours ECE – with a $10 per week optional charge for up to 20 hours.

This optional charge covers the following extras:

Morning tea, sunscreen, portfolios, Montessori Aotearoa subscription, higher staffing ratios, teachers qualified with both Montessori and ECE diplomas/degrees

Any hours above the 20 ECE hours are $4.50 per hour.

WINZ subsidies are also available.
