Prep Enrolments

At Meridan State College we provide a unique Play-based Enrolment for all Prep students. This process allows all children to share their strenghts and personalities in a supportive Play-based environment.

All Prep students are supported as they transition into Prep through multiple positive engagement opportunities.    

Prep is the first year of school and provides the foundation for your child's education. It is a full-time program held in primary schools. Children attend Monday-Friday, from 8:45am - 2:45pm.

Children must be 5 by 30 June in the year they enrol.

Please check the table below to see when your child can start Prep.

Please note that consideration for delayed or early Prep entry an interview must be scheduled with the Primary School Principal and the final decision as to their eligibility is at the Principal’s discretion.
