Enrol

enrol_1Our centre operates a waiting list system, in order of receipt of applications. The earlier you return your application form, the more likely you are to secure a place. You are welcome to enrol your child any time after they are born.

Places are offered early in Term Three for the following year. This process can take a few weeks to complete. Please ensure that we have your up-to-date contact details.
