Queensland's Preparatory Year gives all young Queenslanders the very best start to school by helping them make a smooth transition to Year 1 and sets them on the path to lifelong learning.


Sunbury State School offers a high quality Prep program whereby reading is paramount. Students are immersed in letters, sounds and sight words daily as they begin their journey of “Learning for Life”. The Australian Curriculum is offered in a balanced approach towards structured learning and play. Our Prep students have access to modern playground facilities to assist their gross and fine motor development. Sunbury’s experienced Prep teachers are supported by full-time teacher aides to ensure learning is maximised.



Prep is 5 days a week and children stay all day. Children must be 5 by 30 June in the year they start Prep. To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.​
