    Default *spin off* schooling in WA

    Sorry, just read the qld thread and got me thinking about WA schooling
    I know come the time DD is at school 2015 that Kindy will be compulsory (born 2011 so that will be her Kindy year). But what is the go with 3 year old Kindy? I don't know of any that exist around here (freo suburbs) I think she would benefit greatly from it. Also what happens when they are half days and I have gone back to work? Do they do after school care etc? The whole schooling thing stresses me out!
    TIA

    Hi

    Kindy is not being made compulsory in 2015 in WA - Pre Primary is being made compulsory.

    I'm not too sure about 3 year old kindy's, I did look into them briefly when we were living in WA, there didn't seem to be too many around, and their program was only a couple of hours a week.

    3 year old isnt of course. My son went only because they had one in that area but when we moved they didnt have one down this way so stopped going until he turned 4. I only took him to 3 year old kindy coz it was free and I knew he would love it lol I had no idea pre primary was being made compulsory though but what ever both mine are going to be going anyways lol

    No, pre-primary isn't compulsory, it will be in 2015 which is great because then every child will be guaranteed a place.

    Kindy (2 days a week) isn't going to be made compulsory. I do love how in WA it is part of the public education system though - DS did kindy in WA last year for free, DD2 is doing kindy in QLD next year and it is $25 a day.

    So if DD was born march 2011 she is Kindy 2015 yes? I feel so confused now haha but Kindy is only at some schools? And 3 year old Kindy is a totally separate issue then? Which she would attend in 2014 if we chose? Gah can't she just stay a baby?
