We went to look at a private school for dd today, and I'm wondering if the class sizes are a bit large.
So, what size class does your child have? Public or private? What grade?
At the school it's;
kindly/preschool/4 year olds: 28 kids (2 teachers + 1 assistant)
reception-yr 2-25 kids per teacher
yr 2-6- 28 kids per teacher.
i love the school (my old school) so I'm trying to see if this is normal

My DD is in kindergarten in nsw and her class size is 19. We looked into a private school and numbers were around 28-30 students!! This really turned me off. I think that when you pay so much for a private education the class size should be a lot smaller.

My DDs go to a public school.
In year 1 there are 23 and in Year 3 there are 22. Prep last year was 20-21. In year 2 last year there was 22.
I am surprised that private schools have bigger classes than public schools. That was not my impression at all.

I have 3 friends whose children started school this year.
One private class has 35 the other private class has 32 and the public 20!
My daughter's preschool has 14 children in her class, 2 teachers and one aide. It's a community preschool.
Class sizes DO impact on learning. Anyone who argues that has never taught!

There are 30 kids enrolled in ds's pre primary class but I've never seen that many there. There's usually about 25. There is a teacher and a teachers aide, often there are 2 teachers aides. He's at a catholic school.
