Parents and caregivers who are enrolling their child in prep are encouraged to use the Queensland Government website for Preparing for Prep.
From 2007, all Queensland children have had access to a full-time preparatory year of education before starting year one. The five day per week, prep-year is offered in all state primary schools. There is no waiting list for the preparatory year as it is available to all children attending state primary schools.
At Mount Archer State School the Prep classrooms and playgrounds are located in an early childhood precinct in the centre of the school. There is a maximum of 25 children in each class group.
Please refer to the Queensland Government's online calculator to confirm the year your child will be eligible to commence prep.
Mount Archer State School offers a Pre-Prep for students in Term 4 before they begin prep. More information is available on the Open Days page.
