franTaikura offers quarterly school tours in 2014.  Participation in a tour is one of the requisites for registration on the school waiting list and it is important that parents/guardians of children enrolled in our Kindergartens attend.  We recommend that you do not bring children to these tours.  It can be disappointing if they like what they see and we cannot realise their hopes or expectations.  At present we have full classes with waiting lists.  

In 2011 Taikura commenced an extra Class 2 (this year's Class 5) and there are still vacancies in this.  Ages range from 01/10/2002-30/09/2003.  We have also decided to start an extra Class 1 in 2015.  Birth dates range from 01/10/2007-30/09/2008. If you have a child in either age bracket, please contact the office.

We also have a few vacancies in our Class 8 (Year 9) 2014 and Class 9 2014 (Year 10). Please contact the school office if you are interested in this.

The School office will be closed from 20 December 2013-20 January 2014.

The tours for 2014 are as follows:

  • Friday 7 March at 3.30 pm
  • Friday 6 June at 3.30 pm
  • Friday 8 August at 3.30 pm
  • Friday 7 November at 3.30 pm

The school has an annual Friends & Family morning as well, which includes a Community Assembly, tours by senior students on request, and a chance to observe some lessons in action.  The Class 12 Projects are on display in the afternoon.  The date of the Friends & Family Morning in September 2014 is to be advised.

Please phone the School Office (06-878 7363) to book for the tour or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Please provide us with your name(s), contact phone number (mobile or work number) and the age(s) of your child(ren) when phoning or emailing to book.

Taikura Rudolf Steiner School operates on an Enrolment Scheme.

Our six Kindergarten groups also have some waiting lists.  Please phone one of the centres to make an appointment to visit and place your children on their waiting lists.  The best time to phone is in the afternoons or Monday mornings for Taikura and Tuesday mornings for Mangarau or any afternoon for Taradale.  Parents with newborn babies are especially encouraged to register as soon as possible after birth. Parents can indicate their preference for Hastings, Havelock North or Taradale Kindergartens on the waiting list forms.  There is a non-refundable registration fee payable.
