MELBOURNE RUDOLF STEINER SCHOOL – ENROLMENT INFORMATION

KINDERGARTEN

Kindergarten is one of two entry points into the Melbourne Rudolf Steiner School and we have an open entry policy for Kindergarten. Places are offered to siblings of currently enrolled students and are then offered in order of application date. All applications are placed on a waiting list and positions are offered for Kindergarten approximately 18 months in advance of commencement. Parents/guardians whose children are offered a place for Kindergarten may either choose to enter their child in our Ring-a-Rosie Kindergarten (3 turning 4 year olds) for the year prior to Kindergarten or else commence with Kindergarten (4 turning 5 year olds).

CLASS 7

Class 7 is the second entry point into the Melbourne Rudolf Steiner School and when we look for new students we are seeking families and students who will integrate well into the existing class and school community and who we believe will thrive within our system but also have a positive impact on the other members of our school. We consider a range of criteria, including but not limited to the students’ relationship to the School community (e.g. siblings of existing students, children of staff, children of past MRSS students), the student’s previous Steiner education, the Family’s support for the Steiner approach to education, the social and cultural fabric of the current class, the capacity to pay School fees and the date of application. For families of currently enrolled siblings, how you support the School through that sibling/s enrolment will also be considered.
