Enrolment Procedure


If you would like to put your child on our waiting list, please fill out a pre-enrolment form below, we recommend putting your child's name down before they turn one.


We will email you twice a year inviting you to our introductory evenings, which are held in the first and last term. Attendance at an introductory evening is compulsory before your child can start at Totara Hill Montessori. These evenings give you the opportunity to tour the centre, meet staff, learn about the philosophy and ask questions. We will give you ideas to help ensure your child is ready to make a smooth transition to preschool. 


We offer parents the opportunity to attend a playgroup with their child, as spaces allow from the waiting list, we expect a minimum of two terms involvement before enrolment.


The expectations we have of families who enrol is that they will attend our parent nights held four times a year, that they will work with us as we promote healthy eating, and whānau will embrace the philosophy of helping children achieve independence by giving them time and space to dress them selves and be involved in all aspects of family life.
