When you decide to enrol your child in Kilkenny Steiner School the first step is filling in an application. You can request an application through the form found in Contact Us.
Once we receive the application form back, an interview between parents, teachers and child is arranged. Upon acceptance, parents will receive a School Handbook and an enrolment form, which needs to be completed and returned as soon as possible.
A payment of 1 month’s fees in advance is needed to secure a place. Places can be limited, so early application is recommended.
Contribution Structure for Kilkenny Steiner School Primary
Kilkenny Steiner School is an independent private school which receives no Government funding and is thus dependent on fees and fundraising to cover its running costs. We endeavour to keep fees as low as we can with voluntary support. There are no uniform costs and textbooks and most materials are provided by the school. We do ask for parental involvement with fundraising.
