My daugter is 4 in July and in the UK would have been starting full time in the Foundation class at primary school in September one of the youngest in her year. She currently attends the pre-school playgroup 5 mornings each week and is doing really well learning her phonics and numbers, practising writing etc. On arriving in WA, hopefully in August 14, I understand she will have to return to Long Day Care/Nursery for 6 months before starting Kindy in February 15 as one of the eldest in her year. Is this correct?? She seems so ready for starting school and I'm concerned that returning to long day care/nursery will restrict the development she's already begun in preparation for school. Then she'll have another year of part-time schooling at Kindy (which sounds similar to the pre-school playgroup she's currently with) before actually being able to start at school. Has anyone else encountered this problem? And is it actually a problem at all?? It may be that long day care tend to cater very well with that kind of learning! Could you share your experiences of long day care/kindy/pre-primary etc? Thank you x
