    Yes, it's for under 8's so Year 1 and 2 also do use it and some Year 3 classes follow it for the first semester. But our Kindy room (3 year olds) are on the same curriculum as other Qld Kindergartens and Preschool (3 to 6) is run the same as most Qld Preps in the public system (some privates have not yet brought it in).

    Are you in Qld? I'm in NSW, we are concerned about having to switch him as we really like the centre he is in and secondly the hours that actual pre school runs as we both work FT.. Concerned about having to pay preschool then additional hours for the extra time after and before if that makes sense. I hope our daycare follows that curriculum as I can leave him there as they have a bridging program and orientation with the public school next door. Thanks for all of your help

    The new Early Years Learning Framework ( EYLF) is an Australian wide curriculum so makes no difference what state you are in. So you are getting the same curriculum framework everywhere it's just the curriculum layout and implementation that will depend on how the centre/kinder/school has designed it.

    Yep, I put Qld Prep in because it's not called that everywhere. In NSW it's Kindy.
