For Victorian government schools, enrolments in Foundation (Prep) for the 2024 school year will open from Monday 24 April 2023, the start of Term 2.
We have developed the Enrolling in Foundation (Prep) web page to make the enrolment process simpler, clearer and fairer for families.
We are asking all parents and carers to apply to enrol their child in primary school for next year by Friday 28 July 2023.
All Victorian government primary schools will follow this timeline.
There are no changes to the Transition Learning and Development Statement or transition-to-school processes.
How you can support families
To help families to understand the enrolment timeline, please refer to the enrolment information pack for the early childhood education sector on the Enrolling in Foundation (Prep) web page.
The pack has information about the enrolment process that you can provide to families and staff, with resources including a poster, fact sheet, social media content and newsletter text. Please share these resources through your own communications channels.
The Enrolling in Foundation (Prep) web page also includes information and resources for families to access directly, including an enrolment information pack and fact sheet. The fact sheet is available in English, as well as Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Dari and Vietnamese.
