Prep is the first year of school and provides the foundation for your child's education. It is compulsory for Queensland children to undertake Prep prior to Year 1. Prep is a full-time program in primary schools and has a defined curriculum.
At Bentley Park College, Primary students, including Preps, attend school from Monday to Friday from 8.50 am to 3.00 pm.
Children must turn five by 30 June in the year they enrol.
Use the online calculator to see when your child can start Prep. Simply select your child's month and year of birth.
Please see our Prep Enrolment brochure for more information.
Prep enrolment interviews are held in Term 4 to learn about families and support them through the transition process and answer any questions about starting school.
In November each year the College holds a Prep parent/carer welcome afternoon to support families with a focus on 'ready child, ready family'.
A Prep Orientation is held the following week to assist parents/carers and children to become more familiar and comfortable with the school environment. Parents/carers and school staff are able to discuss their children and form strong partnerships before commencing school.
For more information on enrolling in Prep please phone our Enrolments Officer on 07 4040 8130.
