Prep

PublishingPageContent

To enrol in Prep your child needs to turn five by June 30 of the year in which they start.  You can check when your child is eligible for Prep using the Queensland Government’s Prep Ready Reckoner. 

Prep is a full time program.  Children attend school Monday to Friday 
(8.50am - 3.00 pm.)

If you wish to enrol your child in Prep for the current year then please navigate
back to "Enrolling at our school" (see tab at left).

The following information pertains to enrolments for the next school year:

Please note that we are an enrolment-managed school and may not necessarily be able to accept students from out of catchment.

For those in-catchment, we encourage you to send in your enrolment application as early as possible (once school starts) in the year prior to your child starting.  We do not accept enrolments more than a year ahead. 

If out-of-catchment we ask that you first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI)application and you will be placed on a waiting list in order of receipt. If vacancies exist towards the end of that year, then places will be offered to those on the waiting list (strictly in order of receipt).  The opening date for Expressions of Interest (EOI) will be towards the end of Term 1 in the year before entry is required. 
 

For 2021 Prep entry, out-of-catchment EOI applications are being accepted electronically from 8am on Wednesday 1 April 2020.    Email EOI applications to enrolments@yerongass.eq.edu.au.

Prep Information Session

Our Prep Information Sessions are an opportunity for parents and carers to learn about our school and how our Prep teachers make the first year of school so special.

Prep information sessions for students who are starting Prep in 2021 will be held on Monday 31 August, in our Resource Centre.  A session is held in the morning (9:15am) and is repeated in the evening (6pm) to accommodate parents who find it difficult to make it during the day.   

All Welcome, no registration required.

Please note the previously advertised Prep Information Session scheduled for
Tuesday 5 May, 2020 has been cancelled.

Prep Enrolment

To enrol your child in our Prep program download our Enrolment Application or Expressions of Interest form (refer to Related Links on the top right of this page) or contact the school office (Mon-Fri 8am -3.30pm  Ph. (07) 3426 0333).
 
Completed Enrolment or Expression of Interest Applications can be emailed to enrolments@yerongass.eq.edu.au, or dropped in at the office.  Please note that if you are not in our catchment area you will be placed on a waiting list and offered a place only if we have spare capacity.  Places will be offered in order of receipt.  
 
Once you have been accepted, you will offered an interview from Term 3 onwards. Your child will need to  attend this interview with you.  Please make sure you download the information listed in "enrolling at our school" (see tab at top left) and acquaint yourself with our expectations and procedures. It is preferred that you do this before your interview to streamline the procedure.  

Prep Orientation Day

Our Prep Orientation Day is an opportunity for parents and children (who have already been enrolled) to visit the school and experience our Prep classrooms.  This helps to ensure a smooth start to the new year.  Uniforms can also be bought on the day.  Information will also be available about our Prep Student Resource Scheme.

The date in 2020 for our Prep Orientation Morning (9:15am-10:30am) is to be confirmed, however it is usually held in early November.
