To enrol at Brighton Beach Primary School your child must turn 5 years old by April 30th in the year they begin school.
This year, 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 Brighton Beach 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.
