2024 FOUNDATION (PREP) ENROLMENTS
The Department of Education (DE) has released a new statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline.
The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Moonee Ponds Primary School.
The new timeline will apply for children starting Foundation (Prep) in 2024. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline in 2023 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2024 school year.
You can find information and resources about the new timeline, including factsheets, at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep). You can also download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers for the 2024 school year’ from the Starting School webpage (available from 24 April 2023).
You will be able to apply to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) 2024 at Moonee Ponds Primary School from 24 April 2023.

Residential Address Check
Schools may ask for additional information, such as copies of rental agreements or unconditional contracts of sale, to confirm your address.
Your child’s address is where they permanently reside at the time of seeking enrolment. If your child lives at multiple addresses, their permanent residence is the address at which they spend most of their weekdays.
To support a school’s request, you may be asked to complete a 100-point residential address check. Documents should show the same parent/carer name and address as recorded on the application form.
If unsure what you need to provide, ask your school or refer to the residential address check.
Enrolment applications may not be successful if information is not provided or found not to be genuine.
FOUNDATION TOUR DATES
School Tours have now concluded.
Please contact the school office (03 9375 2511) if you have any queries.
FOUNDATION FAMILIARISATION & TRANSITION PROGRAM
Once you have chosen to enrol at Moonee Ponds Primary School and you have received your letter of offer and accepted. You will be invited to attend our Foundation Familiarisation & Transition program.
We take great pride in the way in which our students make the transition from Kindergarten to their Foundation year, we aim to make it as enjoyable, smooth and positive as possible.
We offer an extensive familiarisation program that commences in Term 4 and continues through until formal Foundation Transition in November. We have found that by developing a strong relationship between our school, the new Foundation children and their parents as soon as possible, we can better plan programs to suit the specific needs of the children.
Our program also helps to make our new students and their families feel part of our Moonee Ponds Primary School community.
Please note: Students must be enrolled to attend the familiarisation and transition sessions.
