Early Entry Consideration into Prep - July 2013 only!

1/06/2017

Are you eligible for Prep in 2018?

Early Entry consideration is now available for children born in July 2013.

​Education Queensland allows for Early Entry Consideration into Prep for children born during July.

To be eligible for prep in 2018 your child should be born between 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013.

Education Queensland is now allowing an additional one month time frame to apply for consideration into prep.

Children whose birthday falls in the month of July and will turn 5 in the year they are in Prep are now eligible to apply for consideration into prep. This means if your child was born in July 2013 you can book an appointment with the Deputy Principal and request consideration for Prep entry in 2016. (July is the only month under consideration in the new guidelines.)

 

Parents must complete an Application for Early Entry to Prep and submit this to the Principal. Parents should bring along any supporting information from day care centres or early learning centres or any other relevant information they believe will support their case to have their child commence prep in 2018.

At Humpybong State School our process will be to conduct a Brigance Screener with your child at the interview. The Brigance Screener will enable the Deputy Principal to determine if your child has the necessary pre-requisite skills to commence prep.

The Deputy Principal will review all of the information with the Principal. If the Principal is satisified that the child is ready for Prep, then Early Entry into Prep for 2018 can be granted and the parent will be notified by the Deputy Principal.

Further enquires can be directed to Prep - Year 2 Deputy Principal through an email to the.deputyprincipal@humpybongss.eq.edu.au
