Enrol Your Child - Prep Enrolment Info

The Prep Year is the first year of primary schooling in Queensland.

The Prep program at St Anthony's fosters spiritual and social development integrated into a curriculum which is inquiry and play-based. The Prep year enhances the growth and development of the whole child – spiritually, intellectually, physically, culturally, socially and emotionally.

At St Anthony’s the Prep students are integrated into the life of our school community. We recognise the value of parent partnership and so our Prep teachers aim to develop close partnerships with parents and carers.

To be eligible to enrol in Prep your child must turn 5 by 30 June in the year of attending prep.

Early entry to Prep can be granted under these conditions:

  • If a child turns 5 years by 31 July in the year of proposed attendance and
  • The principal is satisfied the child is ready for education in Prep, having regard to their attributes (including ability, aptitude, social and emotional competence, physical development, and level of knowledge and understanding).
  • The principal may also enrol a child in Prep who is younger than the prescribed age if
    • the child has previously started education that is equivalent to Prep in another state or country and
