To be eligible for Sessional Preschool, children are required to be 4 years of age before May 1st of that year. Students complete four terms of preschool education and commence school in January of the following year.

If children have additional needs, approval may be given for early entry.
Children may attend for two full days per week and one extra half day per fortnight. Group 1 attends for a full day on Mondays and Wednesdays and a half day on alternate Friday mornings while Group 2 attends for a full day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a half day on the other alternate Friday mornings.
