The Preparatory (Prep) year is the first year of school for your child. It provides the foundation for a child’s success at school.

An important aim of the Preparatory Year is to build on your child’s previous experiences with new and different learning opportunities at school.

To support students make the transition into Prep, Port Curtis Road State School is offering a Step into Prep program, which is funded through Playgroup Queensland. Students who are eligible for Prep in 2019, and who attend a minimum of eight Step into Prep sessions between July and December, will receive a Prep Starter pack.

We welcome new families to join our playgroup and to participate in our Step into Prep program. Please contact the school for more information.
