Queensland's preparatory year gives all young Queenslanders the very best start to school by helping them make a smooth transition to year 1 and sets them on the path to lifelong learning.

Prep is 5 days a week and children stay all day. Children must be 5 by 30 June in the year they start prep. You can find out when your child can get set for prep with our online prep ready reckoner located on the Department website.​
