In 2019 St Thomas’s Riverview Kindergarten will offer a 5-day fortnight Pre-Prep program for children with attendance days and times being as follows:

Pre-Prep A 
Monday, Tuesday and every second Wednesday                                                               
8:30 am to 2:30 pm

Pre-Prep B
Thursday, Friday and every other Wednesday 
8:30 am to 2:30 pm      

Both groups will comprise a maximum of 22 children and the staff ratio will be 2 qualified staff to 22 children.

Children enrolled at St Thomas’s are primarily children who are likely to be commencing the Prep year of education in the following year, with places only being offered for younger children if enrollments allow.

In 2017 and beyond priority will be afforded to those children who are kindy aged, i.e. 3 ½ – 4 ½ years at the commencement of the year.  Such children must turn 4 by June 30 to be eligible for Prep in the following year. (It is a requirement of Education Queensland that children must have their 5th birthday by June 30 of the year they attend Prep schooling).

Children between the ages of 3 – 3 ½ at the commencement of the year will be offered a place if there are no “Pre-Prep” children remaining on the waiting list.  These children will have the delight of 2 years at St Thomas’s.

The enrollment policy reflects Educations Queensland’s changes to early childhood education associated with the introduction of the “Prep year” of schooling in 2007. Useful Websites http://education.qld.gov.au/etrf/prep.html
