While it is not compulsory, almost all parents send their children to Kindergarten so they get the best start to learning at school.
If you are applying to enrol your child in Kindergarten, you can do this by enquiring directly at the school. In most circumstances, you are offered a place for your child if Mount Hawthorn is your local school and we have capacity.
Kindergarten enrolments are accepted from local families from approximately May to July each year for entry the following year.
Information about required documentation for enrolment is detailed on the Application for Enrolment form.
Enrolments process and timeline
- Applications for Enrolment to the school office by mid-July to assist with planning and placement for following year (See Enrolment Policy)
- Notification of enrolment application in August.
- Class placement and planning throughout August to October (Term 3 and early Term 4)
- Orientation sessions offered to visit the site and classes in November (end of Term 4)
NB: As an enrolment driven IPS school, planning and placement decisions are made constantly and can change at any time. The orientation sessions are general information sessions and provide an opportunity to visit the existing classes in action. Specific placement and staff information may not be readily available at this stage.
