I'm so confused.

Unborn babies? Lol, I wish our school was like that. DD was down the day her birth certificate arrived, they wouldn't add her to the wait list without it.
She's April and the July-January babies have filled their limit, fingers crossed people move away, change their minds or don't do the list of things you need to do to stay at the top of the list.

There is also 3 year old kindy in most states but it is less popular than the 4 year old kindy/pre-school.
School isn't compulsory until 6 I am pretty sure?

I put DD on kindy, primary and high school lists at 3wks old. Redundant actually since DH is in the army and I don't know where I'll be next year let alone in 3yrs time!

In NSW the first year of school can be from about 4yrs 6mths (as long as they turn 5yrs before the cut off date which in public schools is 31st July) but they have to start school the year they turn 6yrs. If they don't turn 6yrs until December they still need to start in the January that year but so does a child that turns 6yrs in January. So first year of school ages can range from 4yrs 6mths right up to 6yrs.
Preschool as we call it is the year or two years before they start school. But a lot of daycares also offer a school readiness program. It's not compulsory. Years ago I tried to put DD1's name down for preschool. She's a June baby and I enquired the February before she turned 3yrs and I was practically laughed at. (At 3 different preschools) We had no chance of getting her in as I had left it too late.
