Dear Parents,


At Clarinda Primary School we provide our very popular Pre-School Program:

Stepping Up (4 year olds).

This educational program is conducted by Meny Zapantis, an Expert Level Teacher.

Our focus is on preparing children for entry into Clarinda Primary School.

To ensure that our community is served appropriately, the following enrolment criteria in the following order have been established;

  1. Children who have a sibling at Clarinda Primary School
  2. Children who attend our feeder kindergartens
  3. Children who live in the Clarinda – 3169, Clayton – 3168, Clayton South – 3169 and Oakleigh South – 3167 postcode areas.

The cost for Stepping Up is $225 per term for terms 1, 2 and 3 and term 4 $100 due to the Prep transition program offered during this term. 

During term 4, Stepping Up will only be available to those families who are enrolled for Prep at our school in the following school year.

The Stepping Up (4 year old program) is held on Friday mornings from 9am -12:30pm.

Should you wish to discuss our pre-school programs or take a tour of our school, I am very happy to address your interests.
