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

    That's how i read it as well.

    I claimed it when my DS was in prep in QLD as well. pre primary would be the equivalent.

    I have been talking about 5yr old kindergarten not pre-primary which is year 1!
    I just had a look at the Ed website for WA (i'm a qld teacher so I was curious at how they do it in WA) but according to this, pre-primary IS like prep and is the first full time year in WA and prepares the children for Year One.
    Year One is not called pre-primary.

    Ummm.... Pre-primary is not Year 1 in WA. They are different years of schooling entirely. Kindergarten is not compulsory. Pre-primary is, as are Years 1-12.

    To make it as clear as possible: children in WA start non-compulsory schooling at kindergarten. They then start compulsory schooling in Pre-primary. Then they go into Year 1. Then Year 2. Can I stop now?

    Can anyone tell me if it has gone in with your normal ftb payment, or did it go in separately on a different day? Still not showing on online services for me...

    thanks BoyCrazy. I was hoping not to have to wait till the end of next week. Ah well. It is going to come in handy because money is so tight at the moment here.

    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.
    I know that but I have been talking about WA the entire time.. not other states
