    Default No Kindy 6 Months Before Starting Prep...

    Sorry, this makes it hard, but 'hypothetically' and without knowing any of the situation or circumstances, would you ever consider taking your child out of their kindy year six months before starting prep?

    If it wasn't working for us, sure. I don't consider kindy to be essential. It's helpful, but if not needed, then it doesn't bother me if my kids don't go.

    ETA: a little more info - Kindy is NOT the problem, extremely happy with the service... say, if you were 'relocating' for 3-6 months???

    I couldn't see a problem with that-
    To be honest it would be nice to spend time with your child before they go to school full time.
    I really mourned the loss of the days at home with DS2 once he started school. It's a big leap from 5 days fortnight a to full time school!
    Probably the only downsides I can think of; kindy can confirm of they think the child is def ready for prep, and it is a good foundation going into learning about letter, and other school stuff. But they certainly aren't "deal breakers" and you could make sure they are exposed to that 'foundation' at home.

    In a heartbeat. Definitely worth doing if you want to.

    Yes, I would certainly consider it. Depends on how I thought it would affect my child and whether they would cope with the changes okay.

    We took DD2 overseas when she was due to start kindergarten, so she started school midway through term 3. We made sure she got a chance to socialise and do some learning while we were away. She had no problems transitioning to school.
