Enrolling in Prep

Prep Classroom 

 

Frankston Primary School has a newly revised 2021 Prep Transition and Orientation Program

This program has been designed to enable your child to transition smoothly back into their kindergarten year, enabling your child to enjoy several weeks of undisturbed kinder development before their first Transition Day with us at Frankston Primary School.


Prep Enrolment Information

Prep enrolment commences in the year prior to children starting school. Children enrolling in Victorian schools must turn 5 years old by 30th April in the year of entry and are usually enrolled in the year prior to their commencement i.e. the pre-school/kinder year.

 

Frankston Primary School provides the opportunity for enrolled pre-schoolers to participate in our Prep Transition and Orientation sessions beginning early Term 4. This program runs over four consecutive weeks and is a relaxed and supportive way in which our future Prep students can enjoy time in the Prep classrooms and in their soon-to-be school! The program assists children in becoming familiar with the school environment and in developing a closer relationship with their new peers and their Prep teachers.

 

We welcome all new Prep students whose enrolment paperwork has been completed and submitted to attend the following sessions. These program days support all of our Prep students to feel as comfortable as possible on their very first day at Frankston Primary School.
