Enrolment Process

Enrolment Process

Thank you for considering a Steiner education for your child at Silver Tree Steiner School.

By joining our community, you enter a partnership with the school. It is essential that prospective families be fully informed about the underlying philosophy and school expectations to ensure congruence between school and home for the child.

To continue with an enrolment, follow the steps below.

1. Attend a Tour

The best way to learn more about our school is to visit. See our school in action from Kindergarten to Class 6. We recommend you attend without your children as there is a substantial amount of information to take in. If this is not possible, please feel free to bring your children along and they will be warmly welcomed.

The next step is to submit an Application Form. The Application Form, your child’s Birth Certificate and a letter introducing your family can be submitted either to the office in person or via email. If you have any questions regarding the form, please contact us.

3. Attend an Enrolment Interview

When a place becomes available, you and your child will spend time with your child’s prospective class teacher. This is a time to ask any questions you may have, and find out more about your child’s first day.
