The Department of Education (DE) has released a new state-wide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline.

 

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Camperdown College.

 

The new timeline will apply for children starting Foundation (Prep) in 2024. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline in 2023 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2024 school year.

 

The ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers’ resource, along with information, factsheets and resources, is available to download from the Enrolling in Foundation (Prep) webpage within the Starting school page on the Vic Gov website.

 

At Camperdown College, our enrolment packs are distributed to families via our local kindergartens and also upon request from Monday 19th June (last week of Term 2). Our enrolment timeline, as shown below, complements the Transition: A positive start to school initiative.
