Prep

Eligibility for Prep 

 
To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.
 
 
Prep Interviews 
 
Prep Interviews are conducted in October. You will be asked to bring your child for a 20 minute interview, where we will gather information about your child and spend some time doing a few activities. This is the beginning of the process of getting to know your child and family. After the interview you will be asked to confirm a time and date that you and your child can attend Prep orientation morning.
   
Our Prep orientation morning allows you and your child the opportunity to experience first-hand the wonder of being in a Prep classroom. In our experience this is a vital stage in the transition from Kindy to Prep and we encourage all future Prep children and their parents to come along. 
  
Once all of the Prep enrolments have been finalised the final placement of classes will occur towards the end of the school year. The class lists are published and made available on the last day of the school holidays.   
  
If you have any queries regarding enrolment, please contact us.
