Registration Process

Registration can take place at any time, however as many Timorese children leave for primary school in January spots may open up then. Also some international students will start primary school in August or September and thus additional spots may open up around this time.

Parents are asked to hand in the ECEF’s registration form, a government preschool registration form (we can help fill it in if you don’t speak Tetun) and a copy of the child’s birth certificate for the government.

Should it not be possible to incorporate all children applying for positions, a waiting-list will be prepared and implemented in case of drop-outs and be held until the year after. Positions will be open and filled with incoming students throughout the year.
