Transition – Kindergarden to Reception

Transition Information

Enrolment

From 2014 South Australian DECD schools will have the same first day of school for all children. This will be the first day of term 1. Having the same first day of school means that every child is guaranteed four terms of reception before they go on to the rest of their primary schooling. It will also mean a more stable environment for children with fewer changes to classes throughout the year.

If your child turns five before 1 May, they will start school on the first day of term one in that year.

If your child turns five on or after 1 May, they will start school on the first day of term one the following year.

The minimum age for starting school will be four years and eight months from 2014.
