Thanks everyone for your comments! I know pre school is not school...but it is different from childcare, it has set hours as opposed to picking up / dropping off whenever. It has a uniform and you have to pack lunch. And obviously after pre school comes school...it's the start of something new & I was just curious to hear other's stories!

When my DS started kindy, it felt like he grew up overnight. So many fun new experiences for him and his teacher was amazing. They did lots of great artwork which came home and went on the walls, excursions to do interesting things, learning to write, making new friends and he loved it and flourished. There's also cute Christmas concerts and school assemblies.
Your life does get bound to school hours though which can be hard when you're trying to do other things, or have a younger child who sleeps. I started giving mine her lunch early so she would go down early as otherwise she wasn't getting enough of a nap!
He is now in pre-primary, and with that comes homework, school swimming, more excursions etc. But he loves it and I'm hoping she will thrive at kindy next year too!! And I'm looking forward to my kid free time to do work instead of trying to cram it in while she sleeps/at night.

Private school pre schools in NSW have uniforms , usually the same as the kindy ones

Majority of pre schools in nsw operate separately to schools.
There are not many preschools attached to public schools.
I know there are pre schools attached to private schools and assume that these are the ones that expect children to wear the uniform.
Could be wrong, though
