When should I enroll for school?

If your child is commencing school for the first time, usually on their 5th birthday, it is best to enrol at least 4 – 6 weeks before the starting date.  We welcome you to fill an interest to enrol form as early as possible so we can plan ahead for your arrival.  If your child’s birthday is during a holiday break 4 –5 weeks before the end of the previous term is ideal.  If you are transferring schools , it is best to enroll as early as is convenient.

Transitioning to school program

Children that are nearing 5  years old are welcome to attend the Hare Krishna School one morning week and be involved in the classroom program to familiarise with the environment and to begin connecting with their peers and teachers

We take a tour of the school.

We visit the classroom your child will be in and if possible meet the teacher.

Usually about 30-40 minutes.

What does the school need to know:

  • Key contact information.
  • Parent/Caregiver details.

Very Important

If your child has a medical condition, disability, learning disorder etc it is the family’s responsibility to ensure this is discussed and outlined so the school is informed and knowledgeable.

If we are to provide the best of care and education for your child we do need to know.  Your child is welcome at our school, all information is treated in confidence.
