Early Childhood School

An ACT Public School


Enrolments for 2021

ACT Public School enrolments for the 2021 school year are now open: Access Online Enrolment Form

New Priority Enrolment Area for 2022 onwards

As we move to a preschool to year 6 school, the basis on which children are enrolled at the school will change from the current arrangements to align with the Kindergarten-Year 12 enrolment criteria for ACT Public Schools. For the year 2022 onwards, offers of enrolment in Kindergarten and above will be based on a Priority Enrolment Area (PEA) of the suburb of Franklin. The Franklin PEA can be viewed at

For children living outside of Franklin, enrolment applications will be assessed using the following standard criteria:

  1. If you have legal considerations, where a court order identifies that a student needs to attend a specific school.
  2. If there are exceptional circumstances, based on student wellbeing, that means your child cannot attend your local school and must attend the school they have applied for.
  3. Subject to capacity, the school will enrol your child if they have an ACT-resident sibling attending that school. This includes step/half and cultural siblings (recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kinship relationships).

While every effort will be taken to ensure continuity of enrolment at the school for children already enrolled in 2021, it is important to note for families who live outside of the suburb of Franklin and accept an offer for preschool in 2021, that this offer will not automatically roll over into a place for Kindergarten at Franklin School in 2022.
