When should I enrol my child to go to school?

Your child can start at our kura between age five and six. All children must be enrolled at school by their sixth birthday.

When your child has started at kura, they must attend school every day. This is a change from the earlier rule, where regular attendance was required only from age six.

Enrolling early helps kaiako at our kura with their planning. You are welcome to enrol your child by calling in or ringing the office to arrange a time for your child to start or arrange some visits to get your child used to or kura.
