My marriage visa was granted this week after 13 months waiting! So now we need to sell the house, buy airline tickets and pack the bags! Entry to Aus must be by 5th Feb so hopefully we can get all that done by then.
I'm married to Dave who is from Adelaide and we have 2 kids Elle who's 3 and Daniel who'd 4 weeks! Really looking forward to saying goodbye to the poor English weather and getting settled over there. We will initially be settling in Rostrevor as that is where Dave's family are.
I have a question regarding schools / kindergarten if anyone is able to help. I understand that the school term starts in Feb so that is handy as we will have arrived by then, our daughter will be 4 1/2 by then and I understand would go to kindy for 2 days per week. Over here she has already been in pre-school for 1 year going 3 days per week. She's born early sept so if we stayed in UK would start full time school sept 2017 (but if was born a week earlier would be starting this year) So in effect she won't be starting actual school over there until feb 2018 - I'm worried that this may be a bit too late for her and worry she may get a bit bored - has anyone else moved over there with kids of this age? Or am I just worrying over nothing!
Also Dave works in IT kind of project managing for large manufacturing firms and I am a recently qualified reflexologist - any ideas what the job front is looking like in these areas.
So looking forward to getting there, settling and meeting new people
Any advice, tips or info would be greatly appreciated!
