Prep enrolment Information
Prep enrolment commences in the year prior to children starting school. Children enrolling in Victorian schools must turn 5 years old by 30th April in the year of entry and are usually enrolled in the year prior to their commencement (the pre-school/kinder year).
- Skye Primary School provides the opportunity for enrolled pre-schoolers to participate in our ‘Step into Prep’ orientation sessions, beginning early Term 4.
- An Information session for parents of prep children will also be held early November prior to your child commencing school. This will be an opportunity for parents to meet the class teachers and other prep parents, and to also hear information that is important for parents to know in ensuring a smooth start to your child beginning prep at Skye Primary School.
- Prep Transition Sessions begin mid November and occur over a three week period.
Whilst enrolment for prep can be undertaken at any time, we encourage families to enrol as soon as possible to assist the school in forward planning.
