Open days

Our Pre-Prep Program is created for children who will be attending Mount Archer State School for their prep year. The Pre-Prep Program is run in Term 4 the year before the children commence prep. The children attend for two hours, one day a week.

Our Pre-Prep program is facilitated by a registered teacher with specialised knowledge and experience in early childhood education.


Our pre-prep program is designed to make the transition to school much easier for your child. The program will enable your child to:

  • Be orientated to the prep classrooms and school grounds.
  • Become familiar with prep routines such as eating times.
  • Meet their teacher before starting next year.
  • Participate in early literacy and numeracy experiences
  • Build gross motor and fine motor movement skills.
  • Learn through play.
  • Begin to form friendships with other children in their year level.

Requirements to attend

  • Be committed to attending Mount Archer for Prep next year and attend a Prep interview.
  • Submit an enrolment form with a copy of your child’s birth certificate prior to commencing the program.
  • Your child must be 4 years old by 30 June this year.
  • Have an adult accompany the child for the two hour session. Due to legislation we are unable to provide a program to this age of children without an adult present.
