Planning for mid-year intake in preschools in 2023 has progressed during the break and I can advise that the registration of interest process for mid-year intake into preschool in 2023 commences from Term 3 2022.
Mid-year intake in preschools:
Mid-year intake will commence in preschools in 2023.
|Children born on or
before 30 April
in term 1
|Complete terms 1-4
(of same year)
|Children born between
1 May and 31 October
in term 3 (mid-year)
|Complete terms 3 and 4 and
terms 1 and 2 of following year
What families need to do:
This means families can register their interest now in enrolling in their local preschool to start in term 3 2023.
They can do this via the registration of interest form on the department’s website.
Note: Mid-year intake in schools does not start until 2024
In 2024 this will flow on to schools with children starting reception in in term 1 or term 3.
Term 1 students in primary school will complete 4 terms of reception and term 3 students in primary school will complete 6 terms of reception.
