Prep enrolments

Children will need to be 5 years old by the 30 June in the year they start in the preparatory class. Department of Education’s prep ready reckoner is a tool you can use to determine when your child can begin prep.

Complete the ​​Application for student enrolment and email to by 31st October to help us with our planning processes.

A July birthday or previous school enrolment in another state or country, does not guarantee early entry to Prep in Queensland.

Children whose birthday falls in the month of July (5 years old by 31 July in that year) or have attended school in another state or country, may be able to commence Prep early if they are assessed by the school as being ready for school. Parents/ caregivers are to provide an ​Application for early entry to Prep​ to the school Principal and documentation from an educator where the child is currently/most recently enrolled supporting the application.

All other documents required for enrolment are below and required when your child begins school.

Prep transition statement

All Kindergarten providers in Queensland are required to prepare a Transition Statement at the end of their Kindergarten year. Kindergarten providers will require consent from parents to send this to the school your child is enrolling in. Educators or parents of children  who are enrolling in Prep at Ithaca Creek State School may email the document to the Deputy Principal at . This document provides important information about your child that will assist us to ensure a most positive transition to school.
