Prep and Enrolments

Prep at Tannum Sands State School gives our students the very best start to school by helping them make a smooth transition to Year 1 and sets them on the path to lifelong learning.

Prep is 5 days a week and children stay all day. Children must be 5 by 30 June in the year they start prep.

View the Department's prep ready reckoner calculator to determine when your child can commence their preparatory year.

We look forward to the opportunity of forming a partnership with you and your child.  For further information download our prep handbook (PDF, 1.32 MB)

Preparing for Prep


Each year early in Term 3, our future Prep students and their families are invited to a Prep Open Day in which children can come along, participate in classroom activities, familiarise themselves with the Prep classrooms, meet our friendly staff and make new friends.

Each year early in Term 4, Parent Information Sessions are conducted to provide further information about our Prep programs and the role of Prep in the Junior School.

To complete the enrolment and transition process 1-1 parent teacher interviews are then conducted to gather further information about your child to ensure that they have the best possible start to their schooling journey.

To collect an enrolment pack please contact our school office.
