Starting primary school is a significant milestone for both parents and children. We understand that it can bring about feelings of nervousness and apprehension. However, we are here to make the transition from kindergarten to prep as smooth and enjoyable as possible for you and your child.
We highly encourage all new prep students to participate in our transition program. This program provides multiple opportunities for them to visit the school, meet their teachers, familiarize themselves with the school environment, and make new friends. The specific dates for the transition program in 2023 will be finalized in term 3.
If you are considering enrolling your child at Kosciuszko Street Primary School for Prep 2024, we invite you to book a tour with a member of our leadership team. Taking a tour is a fantastic way to gain further insight into what your child's first year at Kossie will be like and to get a glimpse of their exciting journey throughout the next seven years. You can book a tour by following the links below or by contacting our general office directly.
The Department of Education has introduced a new state-wide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline. This timeline guides families on when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Kosciuszko Street Primary School. The new timeline will be implemented for children starting Foundation (Prep) in 2024. All government primary schools will follow this new timeline in 2023 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2024 school year.
You can find information and resources about the new timeline, including factsheets and the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers’, at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep).
You will be able to apply to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) 2024 at Kosciuszko Street Primary School starting from 24 April 2023.
