Hi, just wondering why you want to send him only half year for kindy? If he is ready to start school, he might be ok. Otherwise, kindy program is important. As far as I am aware, almost all government kindy run 1 year program in SA. Fisrt term would be mainly getting them to a routine. By term 4 most of them are ready to start school. If there are any issues, it would be easy to identify and provide support if you start at the beginning of the year. Did you attend interview with your child? May be contact director at the early learning center attach to the school. They will help you.
