I'm completely confused over the whole school thing as my little girl is starting full time school here in September and already goes to pre school at the school which is private. As her birthday is June she'll be just 4 when she goes full time so i am a bit worried about us moving over. As i understand it children are 6 when they have to be in school but pre school is like here?? As the school year is different would she start school in the jan/feb of the year following her 6th birthday?
Also, if that is the case then she will have been in full time private school for two years so i am worried she'll be ahead of her classmates and therefore get bored! One of the main reasons she goes to private school is because she is bright and needs that extra push to focus her and small classes really work in her favour and behaviour wise she is much better now. Thus, its a real worry to us about schools and how changing will affect her. Ideally, should we try to emigrate so that she can start at the beginning of the school year?
Has anyone else changed their kids from private uk to state oz schools?
Sorry for all the questions but the school thing is a real big thing to us and i'm grateful for any advice and help x
