Prep Transition

Tarneit P-9 College

Prep Transition

The first years are an exciting and engaging time for your child. Building positive relationships and experiences in the early years is important to long-term development, learning and wellbeing.

The more you can help your child to become familiar with the layout of the school and what they need to do before day one, the less overwhelmed they are likely to feel.

Enrolments for Prep 2023 are now open!

Prior to starting this process, you can locate your designated neighbourhood school by entering your permanent residential address at www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au

If your address is zoned to Tarneit P-9 College please follow the requirements below.
