    2 people have posted the chart previously on this thread that says clearly that Kindergarten children DO NOT get the payment, from YEAR 1 only. So for those who think they will be receiving for their children that are not in year 1 are not entitled to the payment and shouldn't be receiving it according to that fact sheet and was also verified by the customer service officer when I rang. So if you think you are going to get the payment something is wrong somewhere.
    It says "pre-primary (years 1-7)" so that indicates to me that if you have a child enrolled in pre-primary that you will receive it (if eligible).

    That's the table I was looking at too. So if you are in WA, it's pre-primary and not year one.

    I wish they all used the same names in each state

    I think that because it's called different things in different states, it's causing a lot of confusion.
    My DS is going to be in Kindergarten in NSW this year and i'm getting it for him.

    Kinberleygal, I think that's incorrect. I don't think it starts in Year One, but in pre-primary for WA.

    Pre-primary is year one? I really didn't know that. I assumed pre-primary was like preschool/prep and year one was well, year one lol!

    Do you not know that they called different things in different states?!

    In the ACT and NSW Kindergarten is the first year of compulsory education. Pre-school comes the year before Kindergarten (or two years before depending on the program) and is not compulsory.
