    Well I guess I'm wrong I always thought it went pre prep then prep then grade one. I'll ask around but I'm sure that's what I've been told by everyone when I asked

    looks at the chart

    the shart shows "kindy" then "prep" for Queensland. I am certain that the official term is "pre-prep" but the common term is "kindy" or "pre-school" in Queensland.

    :/ since when did the names of "grades" before yr one become so complicated?! I still refer to kindy as the transition 2 yrs before grade one, preschool the yr before officially starting school.

    It's be nice if if were uniform across the country too!

    I'm in QLD and we say kindy, prep, then year one.

    Daycare is something different. DD won't be going to daycare at all. There are daycare centres that run kindy programmes, but not teacher qualified ones like c&k do.

    By "kindy" I am referring to a school-like program that occurs the year prior to primary school, and is privately operated and not all children attend. For example, my 4yo attends "kindy" at a C&K centre in Queensland. (Her school day is 8:30 am until 2:30 pm.) Other 4yo's go to daycare and experience a kindy program at daycare. But when they are said to be attending "kindy" it then follows on that their 2yo sybling is also attending "kindy".

    I have previously seen a government page that listed the various terms that "kindy" and the "foundation" year of school was called in the various states. I cannot seem to find it at the moment but found a wiki page. However I was sure there were more different terms than is listed on the wiki page.

    It says that the year before school (which I would term "kindy") is called "pre-school" in ACT, NT, and NSW, or "kindergarten" in SA, WA, Vic, and Tas, and "pre-prep" or "kindergarten" in Qld. (I was under the understanding that it was officially "pre-prep" in Qld, but people generally said either "kindy" or "pre-school" because that was what it had been historically.)

    And it states that the first formal year of schooling (in primary school, prior to year one) is called "kindergarten" in ACT and NSW, "transition" in NT, "reception" in SA, "pre-primary" in WA, and "preparatory" in Qld, Tas, and Vic. I have heard that there are moves to rename the year nationwide to "foundation" which would at least be consistent, but seems to me like a horrible term without a logical abbreviation.
    My son goes to kinder at day care.
    It's a government funded kinder program.
    Maybe you don't realize this occurs in a lot of day care centers.
