Children deemed to be in zone will be offered placement at Preschool based on age rather than date added to the waiting list. For example a 3.5 year old who has recently moved to the area will be offered a place before a 2.5 year old who has been on the waiting list for some time.
Children living outside the zone will be deemed in zone as long as they have a sibling (living at the same address) currently attending Puketapu School or Puketapu Preschool.
Proof of residence within the zone or proof of sibling enrolment acceptance at Puketapu School may also be required.
Children currently attending the Preschool will be offered days as they become available based on the following: 2 years old – 2 days 3 years old– 3 days 4 years old – 4 days +
Days will be offered to in zone children on the waiting list after the above criteria have been met.
If there are no children aged over 2 on the waiting list who are in the zone, additional days be offered to children currently attending before offering days to children out of zone.
Sessions can only be offered once they are available. Please refer to the Puketapu School website for clarification of our zoning.
