bit confused but thanks for all the answers.
so my youngest will be 4 this Dec, she wont be able to start kindy until november??
my eldest was 12 in Jan, he started senior sch last sep, will he come over and do one term of primary school and then start jan at high school?
then my middle child will be 10 in April, same for her? just starting a year back?
can i get them into prospective schools from here if i contact the school/kindy?
We already have a short list of schools we hope to send our son to and 2 of them are in a zoned area (different ones). Once we are there we shall visit them all, decide which we like best and then apply.
Personally I'd not risk enrolling a child into a school you've not seen or visited or met the staff of. And for an older child even more importantly that they have seen it or spent a day in at least. Its a huge thing and I do believe its better to be on the ground so to speak to check it all out. If you get it wrong you only end up having to start over and making the moving and settling in process harder for everyone.
FWIW, we are timing our move for over the summer hols here or early September. Then we can check out schools and settle on one and send our son for the last term of reception there and then see if he repeats it (to remain with his peers) or goes up to year 1 (and be the youngest in his year). That way we give ourselves time to check out all the schools and so on and hopefully secure a place.
