    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Unley! They're fantastic. They have all kinds of specialists come in and assess the kids. They gave a school readiness program where they assess the kids in term 1, then they meet with the parents and tell us where they're at and recommend things to help them improve. Eg. My DS couldn't hold her pen properly so we got lots of exercises to do with her to help her grip and fine motor and she's improved so much.

    It's really important for us as she will Rhine of the youngest - will be 4 when she starts school.

    Hmm. I could be wrong, but it's my understanding that kindy (now officially "pre school" enrollment process has changed for all DECD (public) kindies.
    They're supposed to be figuring out what constitutes their local area and offering places for next year soon... I think it's in August. That's round one. They're then doing a second round of offers in November for any remaining places. Theoretically, any enrollment forms should be acting as an expression of interest at this point, and nothing else. It sounds like a lot of kindies might still be running off their old systems?

    Default Adelaide Hubbers #2

    I know I was on a wait list for Lady George, they needed a certain number of students before they would be given a new staff member (all to do with teacher to student ratios).

    Unley said no to start with but offered us a place in the end as we live a 5 minute walk from there, so we were lucky I guess
