Prep Parent Handbook


A new statewide timeline for enrolling in Prep for the 2024 school year has been released. 

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government school. The new timeline seeks to make the enrolment process simpler, clearer and fairer for families.


The new timeline will apply for children starting Prep in 2024. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline. If your child is starting Prep in 2024, you will be able to apply to enrol your child in a Victorian government primary school from the start of Term 2, 2023 (Monday 24 April 2023).


Your child will need to turn five by 30th April of the year they start school. Call or email us for further information about enrolling your child. We look forward to having you as a part of our wonderful school.
