Enrolment Information

If you are living within the school zone you are welcome to contact staff in the office to place your child on the pre-enrolment register. Feel free to pop in, send an email to reception@waterlea.school.nz or phone us on 636 4233. It is never too early to get in touch with us so please pre-enrol as soon as possible.

Please note: We are not taking any out of zone enrolments

When you child is nearly 5 we will contact you with further information about the enrolment process and transition to school. There will be forms to fill in and you will need to provide your child’s birth certificate/passport, immunisations record and proof of address (such as a rental/house agreement or power bill).

Please note Waterlea now operates a cohort entry process for new entrants, which means that rather than children starting school the day they turn five, they now start in groups (at the start and middle of each term), once they have turned five.

Each cohort will have four school visits, typically on a Friday, prior to starting school.

Cohort entry dates for 2019:

Term 1: 01 February, 10 March

Term 2: 29 April, 03 June

Term 3: 22 July, 26 August

Term 4: 14 October, 11 November
