DfE are introducing a mid-year intake into preschool. This means that from 2023 children who turn 4 years old:

  • Before 1 May are eligible to start preschool at the beginning of the year.
  • On 1 May to 31 October can commence preschool through the mid-year intake at the start of term 3 of that year.

Children who turn 4 years after 31 October will be eligible to commence preschool at the start of the following year.

The Department for Education’s annual parent survey

The 2022 parent survey is now open and runs from 1 August to 28 August.

We encourage you to complete the survey as we want your views on our school and the education system. It takes less than 10 minutes.

The survey is coordinated by the Department for Education.

How to participate

You will have received a unique survey link via email or SMS.

If you did not receive an email or SMS with your unique survey link, contact and include our school’s name in your email.

Your answers will not identify you or your child. Only collated feedback will be provided to our school.

We’ll use the information collected to inform school improvement planning and activities at the school.

The department may also use your feedback to inform and evaluate the Parent Engagement Strategy and other key initiatives to improve education in South Australia.
