​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Prep is a full five days per week program and is the first year of formal learning in Queensland schools. To be eligible to attend a Prep program, children must be five at the time of enrolment or turn five by June 30. To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.
