Preparatory Year is available to all children of eligible age. Preparatory Year is full-time and not compulsory.
Children will need to be 5 by 30 June in the year they enrol in Preparatory Year. It is anticipated that early entry to Preparatory Year will only be allowed for children on transfer across Australia and internationally who have been enrolled in a similar pre-year 1 program. To determine if your child is eligible to enrol in prep please check the Education Queensland's Prep ready reckoner.
Delayed entry to Prep are options which may be considered in specific circumstances and where it is in a child's best educational interests.
