Fees & Enrolment Information

Join Us at Kowhai Kids!


Once you have decided that Kowhai Kids is the daycare centre for you and your family, we have a simple recommended enrolment process for you to follow.



Our Enrolment Process


We strongly encourage all potential new families to visit our centre and meet our teachers and families to get a real idea of how we operate. It is the best way to know which childcare centre is right for your family and to see if your child will be happy in our environment. Our enrolment process usually goes like this:


  1. We strongly recommend booking a visit to come and see us before filling out any enrolment forms. This is to allow you and your child the opportunity to look around our centre and determine if it is right for you. You also get the opportunity to ask as many questions as you would like.
  2. During your visit we show you how we operate, introduce you to the team and let your child meet the other children. This is another really important part of choosing a childcare centre as your child needs to feel happy around the teachers and other children.
  3. We invite you to take an enrolment form to complete and return to us along with the other information we require such as your child’s birth certificate. We advise you to do this quickly as our places fill up fast and our waiting list will apply if there are no immediate vacancies.
  4. Wait to hear from us about the start date for your child!
