PRE-PREP students swapped crayons and finger-paint for formal wear and mortarboards at their graduation from Play and Learn Mulberry Tree.

About 50 children each received a certificate and flower to mark the important day.

Centre manager Brenda Riek said the end-of-year celebration was the biggest yet.

"It was the first time students dressed formally, and we also had a disco that they all danced at afterwards," Ms Riek said.

"It's a special time before the students go to 'big school'.

"They're all very excited about starting Prep next year."

Ms Riek said the event showed how care and education before school had changed.

"Childcare isn't just childcare any more, it's education," she said.

"We've got a registered kindergarten program and we like to recognise all the students who attend."
