Prep Enrolments 2019

Starting school is an exciting time for students and parents. The first step is to determine when your child can commence their Prep year by visiting the Department of Education’s Prep-ready calculator.
Enrolments for Prep 2019 open on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, and close on Friday, September 21, 2018.
Out of catchment interviews will take place between August-September, with out of catchment offers made in mid-October.
To assist with your child’s transition to school, we currently offer the following programs:
Prep tours:
Held fortnightly on a Monday, Prep tours run from term 2 until the end of term 3, and offer parents and children insight into the facilities and culture of Buderim Mountain State School. Bookings for the tours can be made by contacting our administration office on 5477 2777.
Prep-transition playgroup:
Throughout term 4 a fortnightly playgroup runs to help with children’s transition to Prep. The playgroup is available for any new enrolments to attend but is particularly useful for children who do not attend Kindergarten programs within the area, do not already have friends who will be attending the school, or have never participated in Kindergarten. Bookings for the playgroup can be made by contacting our administration office on 5477 2777.
Local kindergarten affiliations:
The Prep/Year 1 Deputy Principal works closely with kindergarten programs in our school catchment area to provide information about the enrolment process to parents. Some kindergarten classes within walking distance will visit our school, while other kindergartens will instead receive a visit from a Buderim Mountain State School staff member.
Prep Information Sessions:
Held in November, Prep information sessions are available over evening and morning sessions. The events provide information to parents of enrolled students on what to expect, and provide an opportunity to meet the Prep/Year 1 Deputy Principal and Principal. For more information contact our administration office on 5477 2777.
