Foundation Enrolments

Welcome to our prospective parents, and thank you for considering Kew East Primary School.

Kew East Primary School is a thriving community that prides itself on strong connections within the community. When you enrol your child at our school, they will be immersed in an engaging and high-performing learning environment. Parents and carers will also have the opportunity to connect and build lifelong relationships.

We are dedicated to providing a learning environment for all students, fostering inquisitive and engaged learners. Our focus on student health and wellbeing further promotes the development of the whole child.

We offer an extensive transition program that begins in Term 4, providing multiple opportunities for our future Foundation students to transition into primary school. Parents and carers also have the chance to meet the principal and current Foundation teachers during transition sessions.
