Prep at Maleny State School

Prep Year has been offered at Maleny State School since it was a trial school in 2004. 
Educators are trained in The Early Years Curriculum and the National Curriculum Guidelines and are implementing these guideline in their classrooms. It is a full-time program and children attend from Monday to Friday during normal school hours, from 8.50am to 2.50pm.

Children must turn 5 by 30 June in the year they start Prep (i.e. Children born between 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015 are eligible to start Prep in 2020). A Prep Enrolments checker is available to confirm ages.

A key feature of Prep is that it makes connections between school and children’s experiences at home, kindy or daycare. Prep is integrated fully into the rest of the school. Classrooms and other facilities are located in the school grounds.


Prep provides the foundation for your child’s success at school by developing:

  • A positive approach to learning
  • Independence and confidence
  • Thinking and problem-solving
  • Language skills
  • Early literacy skills
  • Physical abilities, including gross and fine motor skills
