Steps to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) for the 2025 school year.

To start primary school in 2025, your child will need to turn 5 years old by 30 April 2025. Schooling is compulsory for children who have turned 6 years old.

If your child is starting Foundation (Prep) in 2025, you will be able to apply to enrol your child in a Victorian government primary school from the start of Term 2, 2024 (Monday 15 April 2024).

What you need to do:

  1. Use Find my School to locate your designated neighbourhood school (referred to as your local school) and other nearby government schools.
  2. Contact a government primary school to book a school tour or to learn more about the school and the enrolment application process.
  3. Download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents and Carers.’ The pack will be available from Monday 15 April 2024 and will include an application form. The school may also provide you with a copy of the form to complete.
  4. Submit an enrolment application for Foundation (Prep) by Friday 26 July 2024.
  5. You will be notified of the outcome of your application between Monday 29 July and Friday 9 August 2024. If you receive an enrolment offer, you should accept the offer by Friday 23 August 2024.
  6. Take part in enrolment information and transition sessions during Term 4, 2024.
  7. Your child will start Foundation (Prep) from Wednesday 29 January 2025.

Enrolment applications submitted after 26 July 2024 will be processed by the school as they are received, in accordance with the Department of Education’s Placement Policy.

Your child has a right to enrol at their local school. Your child’s local school is determined on the basis of their permanent residential address. Visit Find my School to locate your child’s local school. The enrolling in a school page can also help you to confirm your child’s address for enrolment.

If you wish apply to enrol your child in a school that is not their local school, you should read about school zones and how applications are processed and prioritised using the Department of Education’s Placement Policy found on the enrolling in a school page.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office on (03) 8786 9988.
