    As far as I know prep is not compulsory in Qld? So her child could start year 1 the following year. I wouldn't recommend that though and I might be wrong or the rules might have changed.

    Don't quote me on this, but I think prep may be compulsory from next year?

    I was speaking to DD2s kindy teacher about this last week. If anybody applies to repeat kindy instead of going on to prep they need a signed letter from their future schools Principal stating they will NOT put that child directly into Grade 1.

    I agree with the PP on this one - the above statement is not true in QLD.

    oops missed the QLD bit, that info was for NSW. For QLD it should be prep 2014, yr 1 2015, prep is not compulsory.

    Hi all, thank you so much for the replies! It's much appreciated.

    I don't think my sister has intentionally decided to hold her back but this was the start date she was given by the school.

    2015 start didn't seem right but because I'm from interstate thought I would get some info from you guys to see what the correct age range was in Qld before raising it with her.

    I know some of you mentioned that prep isn't compulsory in Qld, so if she were to go straight to year 1 would that be a 2015 start or would she have the option of 2016 (as it stands now if she were to start prep in 2015).

    Hope this all makes sense and thanks again for all your comments :-)

    She would have to speak to the school, some are more rigid then others in terms of starting at a different year then they 'should'

    Thank you Piña Colada. I will have a chat to her and see if she is aware that her daughter could potentially start next yr. I will also suggest that she have a chat with the school to further clarify.

    I was under the impression prep was compulsory in QLD now.

    Prep is still non compulsory and a child must be 5 by June 30 in the year they start prep.
