Thank you for your interest in Mount Waverley Heights Primary School. Enrolments for next year are now being taken. Please contact the School Office for an information pack or to arrange a school tour.
School Tours Prospective families are welcome to visit the school for a tour of our facilities with the Principal, Mrs Sharon Reiss-Stone.

Prep enrolment commences in the year prior to children starting school. Children enrolling in Victorian schools must turn 5 years old by 30th April in the year of entry and are usually enrolled in the year prior to their commencement (the pre-school/kinder year).
Mount Waverley Heights Primary School provides the opportunity for pre-schoolers to participate in our Prep Transition Sessions, a brochure of which is available in the Prep Transition section below. Transition Sessions for Preps usually begin in late Term 3. An Information session for parents of prep children will be held in Term 4 prior to your child commencing school. This will be an opportunity for parents to meet the class teachers, representatives from the Parents Club and other prep parents. Whilst enrolment for prep can be undertaken at any time we encourage families to enrol as soon as possible to assist the school in forward planning.
Enrolling at Other Levels Enrolments are taken throughout the year for all year levels (subject to availability). Please contact the school office for further information.

The Pre-school Transition Sessions help prepare children for the move from pre-school to school. The program assists them in becoming familiar with the school environment and in developing a closer relationship with peers and the Prep teachers.
Mount Waverley offers transition sessions for prospective pre-schoolers and a range of parent information sessions where staff and school support agencies present relevant material to support parents in preparing their children for school. Alongside this we hold a Prep Information Night and New Parents Prep BBQ which provides an opportunity to meet other new families and as a more official event to welcome you into our school community.
Below is a recording of our 2020 Prep Information night which includes some useful information on begining Prep.
