Prep at Dayboro State School
Prep is an early education program, only offered in primary schools.
It is a full-time program and children attend from Monday to Friday during normal school hours, generally from 9am to 3pm.

- a positive approach to learning
- independence and confidence
- thinking and problem-solving skills
- language skills
- early literacy and numeracy
- physical abilities, including gross and fine motor skills.
