Prep Enrolments 2020

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 2020 open on Tuesday 23rd April 2019 and close on Friday 20th September 2019.
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 weekly 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 Morning:
A part of your child’s transition, in late November or early December you will be invited to attend a transition morning with your child. The morning session will run from 9:00am until 10:30 am and will be held in one of the Prep Classrooms. This morning session is an essential element of the transition Process and will provide the opportunity for your child to meet other children coming to Prep in 2020 as well as become  a little more familiar with the school. Parents are requested to remain with their children during this session so that they can share the activities and experience of the Transition morning.
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.
