    Thanks everyone I Am totally happy to send her to preschool It was mostly childcare or kindy (as it used to be in qld) that I was wondering if they were essential. Initially I requested a spot for childcare when I was pregnant with dd2 and wondering how I'd cope but most days we do okay so be easier not to Stress about childcare until She is ready For preschool and financially it will be easier for us.

    Yes with 5 of mine. They were fine.

    I just went to info night at the school and made sure they knew everything the school wanted them to know.

    OP, mid year is pretty hard to get a spot. Make sure you call the centres and let them know you are still interested and you might hear back about the start of next year.

    Thanks I am in contact with them regularly one has even said we are next on the list (that was in June this year) it's very hard to get childcare where we live although I think we will most likely get a spot for next year as she will be in the next age room however I am just not going to worry about it anymore since we have gone this far without it and I know we are being moved next year so will now wait for preschool.

    Had I not needed daycare because of work none of mine would have gone. They would have gone from home to 3 year kindy but they have still had plenty of interaction with other kids outside of daycare leading up to that though. I don't know if all states have 3 year kindy, it is 2 afternoons a week here for 1.5hrs.

    I think only wa and Vic have 3yo. Qld has 4yo (the year before prep) and its 800/term. Only HCC holders get a discount. It is good but the hours are so short 8.40-2.40 5days/fortnight that most parents need daycare as well on alternative days to work. Unless you go to a daycare kindy program.

    I went to preschool 1 day a week when I was 4 and was the sookiest, most attached kid ever but was absolutely fine leaving mum to go to school. Personally I think it depends on how well the child adapts to change.
