Is my child ready for school?

Starting school is such a big step. How do I know if my child is ready?

The NSW Department of Education parent website School A to Z has spoken to a range of teachers about how to make the right decision for your child. Here are some of the key points and questions to ask:

  • Children may enrol in Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five years of age on or before 31 July in that year.
  • All children must be enrolled in school by their age of 6.
  • Are they physically ready?
  • Are they socially and emotionally ready?
  • Children don't need to read or write before they start school.
  • Visit your local school and attend orientation days before you decide.

Go to the NSW Department of Education A to Z enrolment link for more details.

Applications for enrolment are available at the school office. Please ensure you have completed our 'Prospective enrolment' form so that we have your details and can send you any relevant information.
