Prep Enrolment

When to enrol

To start primary school your child will need to turn five years old by 30 April in the year that they start school. Your child must be at school in the year that they turn six years of age. This is the compulsory school starting age. At Mt Eliza PS, we begin taking enrolments in May.

How to enrol

You need to fill out an enrolment form at that school and provide the school with important information about your child, including:

Health questionnaire

When your child starts primary school, DET has a requirement that you fill in the school entrant health questionnaire. Some of the questions are about your child’s vision. You will be asked if your child has had their vision screened: either the Melbourne initial screening test or a vision screening performed by your doctor.
