How to Enrol


Children may be enrolled at five years of age, but must be enrolled by the age of six.

Kahutara has an orientation programme with weekly visits available from the age of 4 and a half. These are held on a Friday morning 9-10.30am. We encourage at least three or four pre-enrolment visits to ensure a happy and enjoyable transition from home to school.


Contact the school to make an appointment with the Principal.

You will need to bring:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Medical information, medications, allergies and immunisation certificate
  • Custody documentation if relevant
  • Completed enrolment form.
