Kindergarten Class Sizes
Our optimum class size in Kindergarten is 21 children per class. Our small class sizes ensure that teachers get to know each child very quickly and are able to more accurately develop programs that meet each child's learning needs.
Children are accepted into Kindergarten if they turn 5 years of age on or before 30 April.
Enrolment into Kindergarten
For children who attend the Chapman Preschool Program in the previous year, and who live in the school's priority enrolment area will automatically progress to kindergarten.
Families in the Chapman Preschool Program who do not live in the schools PEA are required to lodge an application for the kindergarten year however, due to the large number of enrolments received for kindergarten from families living within the PEA, enrolment cannot be guaranteed.
Families who do not attend the Chapman Preschool Program should lodge an application online at www.education.act.gov.au.
Starting school is a big step for children and it takes time to adjust. Children do best at school when their parents and teachers support each other.
