The transition from Pre-School/Kindergarten to school is an important one of all children. The Department of Education has a 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 Wattle Park Primary School. You can find information and resources about the enrolment timeline and procedures at:
