Same First Day

All children in their eligible year of preschool will start in Term 1 of the school year.

  • If your child is born before 1st May they will start preschool Term 1 of the year they turn 4.
  • If your child is born on 1st May or after, they will begin preschool in Term 1 of the following year (i.e. the year they turn 5).


Currently children enrolled in the preschool are eligible for pre-entry sessions in the term before they start full-time preschool (Term 4).

More information regarding dates and session times will be sent to families prior to the start of Term 4.

We believe that it offers students an effective way to transition into the preschool program and familiarise themselves with staff and routines. Please note that pre-entry is an optional service, and may not be offered in the future.


Moorak Playgroup provides a welcoming and supportive introduction to our preschool and wider school community. Children and families develop their sense of belonging and become familiar with the preschool environment as children, parents and educators play alongside each other.

Our playgroup is run by educators who engage families and children in the playful learning process, and work together to create a fun, sociable and challenging environment for children from birth to school age and their families.

Playgroup runs on Friday mornings from 9:00am until 11:00am and is open to all children accompanied by a parent or guardian. The cost is $2.00 per family per week. Families are asked to bring a piece of fruit and a bottle of water for their child.

Playgroup has a closed Facebook group for current families. The Moorak Playgroup group advertises current events and sessions, and offers family additional information and support. Please request to join or contact one of our friendly educators for more information.

Please contact the school if we can help you in any way.
