Prep year is the first year of schooling and provides the foundation of a child's education. Prep year is a compulsory year of schooling for Queensland children. To be eligible for enrolment in the Prep program in 2022, the child must have been born between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2017. Before enrolment can be accepted, proof of date of birth must be submitted, for example, a photocopy of birth certificate or baptismal certificate, clinic card or passport. Parents may apply for early entry to Prep through the following application process or may make the decision to delay entry to Prep.
Early entry into Prep
Parents and carers of children may seek early entry to Prep for their child. The Education (General Provisions) Regulation 2006 states that the Principal may enrol a child in the preparatory year at the school, regardless of the child's age, if the Principal is satisfied the child:
- had started education in another State or country that is equivalent to the preparatory year; and
- is ready for education in the preparatory year, having regard to the child's attributes.
As part of an application for early entry, parents will need to provide evidence of the child's aptitude and ability, social and emotional competence, physical development and level of knowledge and understanding that suggest Prep is an appropriate placement. Early entry to Prep will require an interview process and advice will be sought from early childhood providers who may have had contact with the child.
Parents should first discuss their intention to make an application with the Head of School Prep–Year 6. The Head of School will be able to provide information about the application process and possible sources of evidence.
Other year levels
A child will be enrolled into their age appropriate year level. Programming may be adjusted to accommodate a child's individual learning needs.
