The Preparatory (Prep) year is the first year of school for your child. It is a non-compulsory, full-time program that runs five days per week. Your child is expected to attend full-time in order to get the most from the Prep year.

Age is the only criterion for enrolment in the Prep year for Queensland children.  Your child must be 5 by 30 June in the year they enrol in Prep.

For everything you need to know about transitioning your child to Prep at our school please read our Prep transition handbook. css_prep_transition_handbook.pdf​ (PDF, 1713 KB)
