Compulsory school age and compulsory Prep - What is the difference?


​Please be aware, the compulsory school starting age is different to compulsory participation in Prep.

Children need to be enrolled when they reach the compulsory school age i.e. turn six-years and six-months.

When they do enrol, unless there are exceptional circumstances, they will undertake Prep prior to Year 1
