Are you interested in having your child attend Wildflower School?

Please read through all the information on this page. You can also learn more about us by reading our School Handbook.

Please add your information to our contact list* if you are interested in having your child attend our school so we can keep you up to date about potential openings in our school as well as any upcoming information sessions. For parents of little ones, there is no need to add yourself to our contact list until the year before they enter Kindergarten (i.e.: if your child will enter kindergarten in 2025, please wait until 2024 to add yourselves to our list).

If your child is of school age and you have been invited to one of our information sessions, please fill out this Statement of Interest form and bring it with you. In Nelson, we have students from Kindergarten to grade 9, and in Creston we have students from Kindergarten to grade 7.

If your child is approaching Kindergarten age, please note that you may register them at your catchment area school (Wildflower Nelson is considered a catchment area school for registration purposes; Wildflower Creston is not). Please note that registering at Wildflower does not guarantee a space at the school). If you are unsure which school that is, you can go to
