In fact, it doesn't take long for kids to need more than the park and the beach to keep them entertained. My kids easily get bored on school holidays now they're older. Just something to think about while you're making your decision as to what you want to do re: school.

Kindy is wonderful, I'm worried about when they start prep, I spend a lot of time at school and I'm heavily involved in the classroom and the expectations that are placed on these kids is ridiculous. Prep is the new grade 1. My daughter is thriving, she is an exceptionally bright kid who is very mature. But my 4yo DS worries me a lot. He is just a stereotypical boy. He can't sit still, he needs constant stimulation and movement.

He can't sit still either, but is good in class and they do lots of physical activity with them. That's where I think kindy is so important in setting a good foundation. It helps them understand sitting and listening etc and sets the groundwork for the years ahead. My DD starts kindy next year, and will still be 3 when she starts. So I do worry a bit about how she will cope compared to DS who was 4.5, but I'm sure she will be fine.

I'd love to do early morning before school stuff but my DD gets so incredibly tired and overwhelmed, cue the meltdowns
It's definitely something I could try though, as by the time my boys are starting school my DD will be that little bit older and hopefully less tired after school.

Ours have a morning activity session outside for about 20 mins, then eat and have free play. More free play at lunch and a short activity in the arvo just to break up the day a bit. Kids hat age need to move!
