I would like to see the curriculum to know exactly what the expectations are at every grade. Anyone know where a copy can be obtained? Education department I am thinking.
After yesterday's teacher meeting I am convinced she is expecting too much from the pre schoolers, there is far too pressure on them I am feeling. A new year with a new teacher will be a good thing I think.

Very interesting- my sil was just told her daughter is so far behind that she wants to keep her back. She is reading level 4 readers and is in a ESL programme so I thought that was pretty reasonable.

I didn't teach any of my kids to read prior to school..however they did know all letters & sounds. DS is now in year 2 & is reading 1 year ahead & DD1 in FYOS & is on a level 22 - well ahead of where she should be. I believe it's best left up to teachers. DD2 is 3.5 & knows all letters but I won't teach her either.

My dd1 was reading chapter books in year 1, but I assure you that was not the norm nor was it expected.
Dd2 moved to chapter books in year 2 and she is average in her class.
We read to them everyday before they started school and that was it. We didn't do anything else to teach them. Just read their home readers with them when they started bringing them home.

Pre-Primary in WA is Foundation (year before year 1).
Having a quick glance over it does look like DDs class are working well above the expected level in maths. It could be because there's quite a few smart cookies in her class who need the challenge.
