**  Important changes from 2013  **

Changes to when children can start preschool will be introduced from next year.  By 2014 all children will start preschool and school on the same day, the first day of Term 1.

This will bring South Australia into line with other states and will ensure that all children receive four terms of preschool.  This guide shows when your child can start preschool and school.

Alternatively, visit www.decd.sa.gov.au/samefirstday and use the online tool to determine when your child can start preschool and school.

Aboriginal children and those under the Guardianship of the Minister can start preschool once they turn three. Children with additional needs may also start preschool early. This is decided in discussion with your local preschool on a case by case basis.

For more information contact your local preschool / school or visit www.decd.sa.gov.au/samefirstday.
