Year Levels of Entry

Early Learning Centre

When your son or daughter is three years old they can start in our Early Learning Centre. Please complete an application form as soon as possible after your child is born. As long as your son or daughter has turned three and is ready, from a social and independent toilet training perspective, they are able to spend time in an early learning centre. Often three year olds start with two full days only. This increases to three or four full days just before they turn five and start in Reception, the first year level of formal schooling. Of course, the number of days may be less than 10 (i.e. five full days). Students can progress from the ELC to begin in Reception at the start of the year in January or the middle of the year at the start of Semester 2, late in July. Our Early Years experts work with families to ensure the timing of transition steps are ideally suited to each student’s individual readiness.
