Starting School at Carlton South

In the State of NSW children turning 5 years old by July 31st can enrol at the commencement of the school year. Children can also be enrolled up till the end of Term 2 each year if they turn 5 by July 31st, although it is preferable that all students commence as close as possible to the beginning of the year. Children who are 6 years old must, by law, be enrolled in a school.

Kindergarten is a year of exploration - of learning routines at school and of spreading wings to become more of an individual within the school society.
