2025 Foundation (Prep) enrolments - NEW Online System

This year our school will use an online system for new Foundation enrolments. All primary schools in Inner East and Outer East areas of the North East Victoria Region are using this online system. 
The online system will be available for parents who are applying to enrol their child in Foundation (Prep). An application form can be completed on laptops, PC’s and mobile phones. The online system will also allow you to upload documented proof of residential address.

It is important to note that the placement policy is followed by all government schools. You can view the placement policy here. Your chances of being offered a place in the schools you apply for are not advantaged or disadvantaged by using this system.

Victorian government school enrolments for Foundation (Prep) for the 2025 school year will open from Monday 15 April 2024, the start of Term 2. Families are asked to submit enrolment applications by Friday 26 July 2024. 

The Department of Education has released an updated statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline for the 2025 school year.  The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Ainslie Parklands Primary.

All government primary schools will follow the timeline in 2024 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2025 school year.  You can find information and resources about the timeline, including factsheets and a poster at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep). You can also download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents and Carers’ from Enrolling in Foundation (Prep) (available from 15 April 2024).

You will be able to apply to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) 2025 at Ainslie Parklands Primary School from 15 April 2024.
