School year age confusion

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


I was planning to move to Adelaide within the next 2 months with my wife and 2 boys (5yrs and 2yrs). I was a bit unclear about when my boys can start school there. Does it have to be from the first term of the school year or can it be from any term?


My older one will turn 6yrs in June 2017 and the little one will be 3yrs in Feb 2017.


Please, any guidance will be appreciated as i need to plan accordingly since i am coming from overseas.

You can start them anytime so long as they are old enough for the cut off. Can be start of a term, mid term, whenever you arrive and are ready to pick a school and enrol.


If your son is going to be 6 in June then he'd be starting reception from Jan 2017 I think. Your 3 year old you would be looking at kindy or childcare, depending on your needs and if they are eligible for the free kindy hours etc.
