Early entry into Prep? Are there any exceptions to the age limits? 

Section 15 of the Education General Provisions Regulation 2006 allows early entry to the Prep Year for a child who:


  • Will be at least 5 years and 5 months on 31 December in the proposed year of attendance (i.e. a child who turns 5 on or before 31 July); AND
  • Is considered 'ready for education in the year of schooling considering the child's attributes';


  • Had started education in another state or country that is equivalent to the Prep Year; AND
  • Is considered 'ready for education in the year of schooling considering the child's attributes'.

The Regulations define 'child's attributes' as

  1. Aptitude and ability; and
  2. Social and emotional competence, and
  3. Physical development; and
  4. Level of knowledge and understanding.

Parents wishing to apply for early entry into the Prep Year on this basis should make application to the Principal in the usual manner. Parents also need to provide additional documentation to assist the Principal in making a decision as to whether the child meets the requirements of early entry to Prep.


Enrolment Support for Students with a Disability

The Enrolment Application and Support Procedure (EASP) is a process that aims to reveal and clarify the needs of the student and to identify the educational adjustments and transition required for accessing the learning program for the student.

More information is available in the Supporting Children with a Disability at School – A Guide for Parents.


Adjustments are made for students with a disability to enable them to access the curriculum, achieve curriculum outcomes and participate in school life. An adjustment is any change made to help a student participate at school, learn, and be comfortable and safe.

Transition Process

Transitions occur when a student has to move from or into a new educational setting. Transitions may occur when students are moving:

  • into Prep
  • from one year level to another
  • from primary to secondary school

Before a transition process commences, parents, with support, are encouraged to take time to visit all possible educational settings when considering a placement for a student with a disability. The Enrolment Application and Support Procedure (EASP) is one way of identifying the support and personnel required to make the transitioning as smooth as possible. The purpose of a transition meeting is to discuss and plan, collaboratively, a suitable course of action to assist the move as effortlessly as possible.
