Hi, just wondering why you want to send him only half year for kindy? If he is ready to start school, he might be ok. Otherwise, kindy program is important. As far as I am aware, almost all government kindy run 1 year program in SA. Fisrt term would be mainly getting them to a routine. By term 4 most of them are ready to start school. If there are any issues, it would be easy to identify and provide support if you start at the beginning of the year. Did you attend interview with your child? May be contact director at the early learning center attach to the school. They will help you.

What age do they start pre-school. If it's 4 before the end of April I'd say it's only 5 1/2 days as kindy / pre-school is only a 2.5 day a week thing.
My kindy and primary school are amazing - all public and I pay $300 a term (it would only be $180 if she did 1/2 days and not stay for lunch)
What is your DHs reason for private? The idea it's somehow better? Often it can be if the public school you're zone for is average. Did you ever find out which zone you're in?

I personally disagree, but that's him.
There are 2 close near by ascot park and Forbes and I've been told there not the best, also plympton is close by, have not heard or seen that school. I don't know what zone I'm in. But I'm close to those areas.

William light is an R-12 school. No idea about what it's like.
Have you looked at Cedars Primary and St George College? I understand they're both Greek.
