Prep / Foundation Enrolments
Enrolments are now being accepted for prep, also known as foundation, next year.
Come along to one of our group tours or book a private tour at a time that suits you.
See how our current prep children are thriving in our nurturing and stimulating environment.
Speak to our Prep teacher about the program we offer and find out more about our part-time prep program that runs for 3 days per week, perfect for those wanting to ease their child into school life.
The enrolment process
Once you’ve toured Village School and decided to enrol your child in prep, the next step is to complete our application for enrolment.
When your application has been accepted, we’ll then invite you to come to school in person, where we’ll also give you:
- School records forms to complete
- Booklets e.g. Readiness for prep
Your next step will be to attend the prep orientation program, which commences during Term 3 in the year before your child starts prep.
Prep orientation program
New families for next year are invited to attend our prep orientation program as part of our school’s orientation program.
During Term 3 and 4, students attend monthly 45-minute sessions, with the final session in December being a half-day program, when all students across the entire school are in their new groups.
At this point, the new prep students are also assigned their “big friend”, a Year 5 student who will be their special advocate as they settle into school life.
The orientation program is designed for the whole family and is a great opportunity for everyone to gain a greater understanding of our school’s philosophy and curriculum.
You will meet our staff as well as become acquainted with other new families. The children will participate in planned activities each month while all parents will meet for a series of talks. By the time your child starts school in the new year they will be very familiar with the environment and already be starting to build new friendships, ready to embrace everything that school life has to offer.
Part-time prep program
If your child is not entirely ready for a full-time prep year when they finish pre-school, we also offer a part-time prep year to ease the transition into school.
This a lighter prep program, where children attend only 3 days per week, but participate fully in school life and learning.
This provides an option for children who may otherwise need to complete a second year of kinder.
Our part-time prep program may also be suitable for younger children who are ready for school, and for whom pre-school would not provide enough challenge or stimulation.
Once your child has completed the part-time prep program, they will then move into the full-time prep program the following year.
We will discuss the best prep options for your child with you when you come to school as part of the enrolment process.
