Starting school is a rather exciting occasion for the child and the parents. Our extensive transition program prepares the family to deal with the changes that are inevitable, especially the move from the limited environment of the kindergarten to that of a school with many more kids in the yard, more opportunities, more adults around them, wider programs and greater expectations of responsibility.

Frequently Asked Questions
When can my child start school
To enrol in a Victorian government school, children must be at least five years of age by the 30th of April in the year they start school.
Going to school
Starting school is part of a child’s life time development. From the ages of 5 to 12, children will progress from being dependent on others to being independent and more likely to work collaboratively with others on projects. Making decisions and taking responsibility for their actions are key trait developments during their primary school years.
Our information and Prep Orientation Program will assist you and your child make a smooth and happy transition to school life at BUPS.
