Pre-school visits and Enrolment

Parents and children are encouraged to visit before beginning school. Once your child is pre-enrolled, your child’s Guardian Teacher will contact you in the month before their fifth birthday to arrange some pre-school visits or feel free to email the school to arrange some visits.

Island Bay School is zoned, which means that children can enrol at our school if they live within our local area. 

Take a tour


Prospective parents and their children are always welcome to come to look around our exciting learning environments. If you are interested in finding out more about Island Bay School please call to arrange a time to meet our Principal and take a tour of the school.



Once your child has turned four years old please contact the school office to pre-enrol. Your child’s name will then be added to the Island Bay School’s pre-entry register. This helps us to plan classes for the year ahead.

Enrolment Forms


Enrolment forms are available from the school office or can be downloaded from this website. Return the completed form one month before your child is due to start at school.  At this time we need to see your child's passport or birth certificate and their immunisation records.
