Children who are or have been in care are eligible to attend preschool after their 3rd birthday. Additionally they may either start school when they reach the age of eligibility for enrolment at a government school, or continue at preschool until they turn 6 years of age.
Quality preschool education gives children the best possible start in life and prepares them for future learning. Early learning experiences help to create a lifelong passion for learning, develop social skills, assist with problem-solving and creativity and develop language, fine motor and sensory skills.
Please speak with your DCP case worker for further information about preschool enrolment options.
