Highlights
  • The extra year - which will not be compulsory - is part of an effort to improve early childhood development and alleviate the financial strains of childcare.
  • Victoria plans to introduce the extra school year from 2025. It will be called 'pre-prep.'
  • The NSW government committed $5.8 billion for the additional play-based learning, which will be called ‘pre-kindergarten'. NSW will begin a pilot program from 2023.
