Tootgarook Primary School has an enrolment zone, which can be accessed via the findmyschool.vic.gov.au website. We are currently accepting enrolments from outside our enrolment zone for families looking to join our wonderful school community. For more information about School Zones, please visit the Department of Education and Training website.

Enrolments are welcomed any time. We encourage new enrolments to make contact with us earlier to ensure your child has a smooth transition to Tootgarook Primary School.

Each year we run a comprehensive ‘Leap into Learning’ program, where children are invited to attend four sessions at school in the year before they are eligible to start school. Children need to be enrolled to come and try our ‘Leap into Learning’ program. Attending these sessions at school before they begin, will allow them to develop familiarity with our school staff and grounds, as well as help us learn more about your child.   

Our school has an inclusive enrolment policy, and we will accept children’s enrolment where possible and beneficial for your child. We proudly welcome and support all students to access learning at Tootgarook Primary School. 

For more information about how to choose and enrol in a Victorian Government school, please go to the Department of Education and Training website.
