Prep

 

Is prep compulsory?

The preparatory year is not compulsory. Parents may choose to keep their children at home or to send them to an alternative early childhood education and care service. Prep is available for those parents who want their children to participate in a full-time education program at a school.

Can children turning 5 after 30 June enrol in prep?

Children must be five by 30 June in year of enrolment. Special consideration may be given to children from interstate or overseas who meet legislated criteria.

Can children with a disability attend prep?

Children with disabilities, who are of eligible age, are included in prep classes wherever possible. Children with high support needs who cannot be supported in their local prep class continue to be eligible for highly specialised programs for example, in early childhood intervention programs such as the Early Childhood Development Program.
