Queensland's Prep year gives young children the very best start to school by helping them make a smooth transition to Year 1 and sets them on the path to lifelong learning.

Prep is not compulsory and early childhood education and care providers continue to offer programs for children not enrolled in Prep.

Prep is 5 days a week and children stay all day. Children must be 5 by 31 July in the year they start Prep.

You can find out when your child can begin Prep with Education Queensland's online ready reckoner.

For Prep 2017:  A child must be born between 01/07/11 and 30/06/12 to enrol in the Prep year.  A birth certificate must be sighted for the Prep year children on admission.  Copy of immunisation records are also requested.
