To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.

There have been some recent minor changes to the age for prep entry.  Principals may now consider enrolling (into Prep) a child who turns five between 1 and 31 July in the year of proposed attendance if the principal is satisfied that the child is ready for education after considering the child’s attributes.  
This change provides a one month period of flexible early entry to children who are considered developmentally ready for school.  In making the decision,  aptitude and ability, social and emotional competence, physical development, and level of knowledge and understanding will be considered.
