Prep Starting Age

 
In line with Education Queensland's policy, children must have turned 5 by 30 June of the year they enrol in Prep. You can check your child's eligibility for Prep on the Queensland Government's prep ready reckoner website.
 
Early Entry into Prep
A child who is younger than the prescribed age for Prep is only able to commence school early if:
·       they turn 5 years by 31 July in the year they propose to attend Prep AND the school Principal is satisfied that the child is ready for education in Prep
OR
·       they have previously enrolled at school in another state or country AND the school Principal is satisfied that the child is ready for education in Prep
A parent who is interested in early entry to Prep should contact the school where they wish to enrol their child to discuss the requirements with the Principal or a member of the school's senior management team.
 
Delayed entry to Prep for children who have not previously been enrolled in Prep
Parents may delay their child's entry to Prep (and subsequently Year 1) if they feel that the child is not ready to start school. For example, the child is still developing their social and emotional skills. The child can then commence Prep when they are of compulsory school age (6 years and 6 months).
No formal documentation, assessment or approval is required for delayed entry to Prep.
Principals do not make decisions on delaying a child's entry to Prep. While some parents may choose to discuss their decision to delay entry with the principal, it is not necessary for them to do so.
