There are very few preschools attached to public schools here in NSW. Which I don't particularly like.
My mind is boggling as to how this would work in regards to outcomes. And again, I'm only familiar with NSW but pretty sure with the national curriculum would have been implemented everywhere now??? But the first year of compulsory schooling are working towards outcomes from the syllabus. I just don't see how this can compare to the early years learning framework?
Composite classes are *usually* 2 classes from the same stage from the curriculum working towards the same outcomes. Eg. A year 1 and year 2 composite class are stage 1 and working towards stage 1 outcomes so making a class of year 1 and year 2 children isn't really a big deal.
But this just seems absurd???
