Foundation (Prep) enrolment information:

Your child must turn 5 years old by the 30th April in the year they begin school.

At the time of enrolment we need to complete a confidential school record (enrolment form) for each child. You will need proof of your child’s identity such a birth certificate and an immunisation certificate.

Your child’s immunisation certificate can be accessed by contacting the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) Child History Statement (CHS) and is accepted as a school entry certificate provided it states, “This child has received all vaccines required by 5 years of age”. Please read the attachment re: School Entry Certificate for more information. Contact ACIR on 1800 653 809.

Does your child need some extra support starting Prep?

As teachers and parents we often see children who have trouble settling into school life and struggle to develop their daily learning patterns. Some children are not quite ready for the structure of a formal school day, week or term.

To best support children who are beginning to develop social and emotional maturity, we are offering the ‘Flying Start for Prep’program. This program is designed for children who are of school age (5 years old by 30th April the year they start school) but are not yet socially or emotionally ready and confident for the formalities and demands of school life, especially when an extra year of Pre-school or child care is not an option.

The Flying Start program is a transitional kinder to school program, structured around using developmentally appropriate experiences for children, involving lots of talking and play based opportunities both inside and outside. The students gradually build confidence  and skills with reading, writing and number experiences. Socaila nd emotional development is also nurtured through the the very social and interactive aspect of the program.

Please read the brochure below and contact the office, to enrol or find out more, as soon as possible. Flying Start class number is limited to 15 students and can be booked out before the end of enrolment period.
