If your child is starting Foundation (Prep) in 2025, you will be able to apply to enrol your child in a Victorian government primary school from the start of Term 2, 2024 (Monday 15th April).
The Department of Education (DE) has released a the 2024 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 Montrose Primary School.
All government primary schools will follow the timeline in 2024 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2025 school year.
You can find information and resources about the new timeline, including factsheets, at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep). You can also download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers for the 2025 school year’ from the Starting School webpage..
You will be able to apply to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) 2025 at Montrose Primary School from the 15th April 2023.
This year, all schools in the North Eastern Victoria Region will be using an online system for new Foundation (Prep) Enrolments to Victorian Government Schools. The new online enrolment system has been assessed by the Department of Education to a high degree of security in line with the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards and is compliant with ISO 27001, the leading international standard for information security.
All enrolment applications will be processed by the school as they are received, in accordance with the Department’s Placement Policy.
Once your enrolment place has been confimed, the school will email further details regarding Term 4 transition.
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.
Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.
Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
