Enrolment Year Levels
Gisborne Montessori School (GMS) currently offers early learning and primary school programs for children from 3-year-old kinder to the end of Year 8 (approximately 13 – 14 years). We will introduce a Year 9 class in 2024. We have plans to offer education through to Year 12 by 2026. We welcome enrolment enquiries for any year level and we are currently filling places for 2023 & 2024 entry.
Before you begin your child's enrolment process you will need to contact the school to make a time for a school visit. During this visit you will be invited to observe the classroom/s in operation.
The order of priority for offers of a place will be as follows:
Siblings of current primary students at Gisborne Montessori School.
Children transferring from other Montessori Educational Facilities in order to attend the primary school.
Children on the waiting list as per chronological order of receipt of registration.*
