Same First Day: From 2014, South Australia has the
same first day of school for all children - the beginning
of Term One. Having the same first day of school will
ensure that every child is guaranteed four terms of
Reception before they go on to the rest of their primary
schooling. It will also mean a more stable environment
for children with fewer changes to classes throughout
the year. This change brings SA into line with other
states and territories.
- The minimum age for starting school is four years
and eight months.
- Where a child turns five before May 1, they will start
school on the first day of Term One of that year.
Where a child turns five on or after May 1 they will
start school on the first day of Term One the
- Children are not under any compulsion to attend
school until they are 6 years of age. There may be
circumstances where kindergarten / school, staff /
principals or another agency believes that delaying
a childís starting date is appropriate.
Proof of Age : At the time of enrolment parents /
guardians are required to provide proof of their childís
birth age. The following documents are accepted by
schools in this regard:
- Birth Certificate, or
- Official Centrelink documentation stating the childís
name and birth date.
Children transferring from an interstate preschool or
school and who are able to be accommodated will be
eligible for enrolment subject to:
