Pre-School Transition

Transition Visits for New Entrant (pre-5 / 5 Year-Old) Enrolments take place every Tuesday afternoon from 1:45pm - 2:45pm.

Children/Whānau are expected to complete a minimum of four visits prior to enrolment / beginning school - This is to allow for a smooth and seamless transition for both child and whānau.

** All new enrolments must have full uniform and must have purchased our $15 stationery pack prior to us accepting/processing enrolment.


Enrolment Information

It's simple...fill in a few forms, bring along your child's passport or birth certificate and health information and then sit down and meet with us.

At these meetings we typically will ask if there are any social, learning, or any concerns that we may need to be aware of to better support your child and ensure a smooth transition.

If your child was previously enrolled at another school it is not a mandatory requirement for you to inform them about changing schools, however we do contact them to ask about Attendance, Behaviour, Learning Needs. We request your child's records, etc from the previous school.


All Uniform items are only available for purchase through the school office.

EFTPOS is available. Sadly we are unable to provide credit / all items must be paid in full before we can hand them over.

We are able to provide an invoice for WINZ upon request and accept WINZ credit loaded cards as payment.

Thanks to a new government initiative we have been able to greatly subsidise learning related costs for all #CanKidz and whānau. This means aside from the odd fundraiser, the only cost for you in 2022 will be a $15 stationery fee - and that’s it!


All kai is provided - Morning Tea & Lunch is FREE thanks to the Ministry of Education 'Ka Ora Ka Ako' and 'Fruit In Schools' programmes which means all #CanKidz are provided with healthy and nutritious kai!

Trips / EOTC / Camp = FREE!!!

All school curriculum related trips are FREE!

This includes class trips, Y6 Optimist Yachting and Y6 Camp!

The only trip #CanKidz have to pay for is our Taupō Sports Exchange each two years when we travel through to Taupō ($20 each).
