    Private schools have much more flexibility when it comes to delayed entry- you'd have to talk to them though to see what their policy is and also talk to her Kindy teacher about her recommendations. Several children at my DD's Kindy are repeating this year. The Ed Qld website states that no formal documentation or approval is required for delayed entry to prep, if parents feel their child is not ready to start school, but I know several people who have had issues starting their child when they were older. You'd have to make contact with the specific schools.

    As for a school 25 mins away- that's how far I drive to take my DD to school. It's a large part of the day doing school trips, and we're hoping to move closer, but for the meantime we're happy to drive that far because we're really happy with her school.

    Thanks cindye. I might give the principal a call. Yeah 25 minutes doesn't sound too bad but there are two toll points and it's not in a direction where we will pass on the way to work (but hard to explain!) so I'm not keen in committing myself/us for the drive plus extra costs 5 x a week morning and Arvo. Will be virtually impossible when I go back to work too.

    Thank you. That is different to what I was reading months ago. I must have been on a different page because it didn't have anything about delayed entry. Thanks again x
