Enrolment, cost, time & location...
For an enrolment we require a combined referral from whānau and the child's school. Both are asked to complete an online questionnaire describing the student's interests, strengths and traits in detail.
Additionally we invite your child to do a brief online screening with us. This test will establish if there is a likelihood of dyslexia present.
Please note that this is indeed just a screening tool and won't be able to give you a full dyslexia diagnosis for your child. For these services we recommend you contact an Educational Psychologist or SPELD assessor.
In 2024 we plan to extend our services for students from year 3 to year 8. We will run a full day of Project D for students enrolled in our year 5/6 and year 7/8 classes and a half-day programme for students in the year 3/4 class.
The cost of attending our Project D classes is $59 per day in the year 3/4 class and $69 for the full day in the senior classes.
You will be invoiced termly via XERO and thanks to the generous help of the TOI Foundation we can offer financial support through a limited number of scholarships.
There is a once off cost for the assessment and enrolment of $85.
All prices are inclusive of GST.
If you would prefer to pay your Head Office fees per Automatic Payment then feel free to download the following form and return it to your bank:
There is no additional cost for your school if your kura is already affiliated with The Head Office. See a list of our contributing schools here.
We are incredibly grateful for the generous support of the TOI Foundation who made the development of Project D possible.

Days and times
We are offering two Project D classes per week in 2023, one class for year 5 & 6 students and one class for year 7 & 8 students.
In 2024 we will expand our programme to include year 3 & 4. These junior classes will be a half day only (11am-3pm). This will enable students to catch up with their regular teacher and capture the first sessions in school which are often literacy and numeracy.
For our year 3/4 students we will run a half-day programme in 2024.
For our year 5 - 8 students we will run a full-day programme in 2024.
What day of the week the Project D classes will be held in 2024 will be confirmed towards the end of the year.
