    My ds's kindy class is at maximum capacity, as it's the 3 full day class, and thats 22, with one teacher and one aid.

    In primary school they have 30/class but frequently numbers are lower as they take kids out for catch up/ extension classes.

    Kindy in nsw is first year of formal schooling. Class maximum is 20.

    The ratio is 1:10 for pre-school (kindy in other states)

    Our kindy in nsw is the first year of full time mandatory school and at ds school up until year 3 it has been capped at 20, what you call kindy is our prep and our other son is about to start and its like yours, capped at 20 with also an aid but thankfully it stays capped at 20 until year 3 and then his school capped it at 25, we are very lucky with ds school regarding class sizes.
    Why don't they have the same names for year levels for every state instead of all the confusion.

    What happens if the local public school has more than 20 kids wanting to start kindy? ( say 24 for example) don't they have to take your child if you live in the area?

    They would make a composite class.

    Ahh ok so you mean like kindy/year 1? Do parents have any say if they don't want their kids in a composite class in a public school ?
