The Department of Education (DE) has released a new statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline.
The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Mentone Primary School. The new timeline will apply for children starting Foundation (Prep) in 2024. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline in 2023 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2024 school year.
You can download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers for the 2024 school year’ and find information and resources about the new timeline, including factsheets, at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep).
