Our kindy class (vic) currently has 11 kids from both kinder and pre-kinder. DS1's prep class next year is a p/1/2 and I think it will have about 15 kids.

My son had 17 kids in his kindy class, with a full time teacher and full time teachers assistant. The school had 6 kindy classes with about the same numbers in each.

Im in SA. Our preschool (4 y/o) is roughly 1 adult to every 12 kids - I think 1 qualified teacher per 30ish kids, with2 teacher aids.
Our first year of school - prep/reception (5yo) seems to be around 25-30. Ive taught in public schools with up to 33 in a prep class. One teacher & a teacher aide one hour a day. Im actually more suprised at how small some of the other class sizes are that seem 'normal'! Asa teacher in SA,I would regard anything 20 or under as small. 20-26 as medium, & 26-32as large. 32 plus as extra large, lol.

I'm in SA too. The independent R-12 school we hope to get DD (almost 18 months) into has I think 2 Reception classes of 20 to 22 kids in each, and then 3 1/2, 3/4, and 5/6 classes, with about 25 kids in each. Not sure about numbers beyond that.

Kindergarten class sizes
Wow! Some of these class sizes are big for public schools. Very grateful that nsw public schools have limits on class sizes!

My ds is starting 4yr old kinder next year. There are 2 groups both full at 28 kids. 1 teacher and 2 aids.

Oh and we're in Vic. At first I thought the class was far too big but I'm not too concerned at the moment. I'll wait and see how my ds handles it first.

Our preprimary class (for the 5 year olds) go to 27 kids. DD2 didn't cope at all with so many kids. It wasn't a problem for DD1. So much depends on the nature of our children.
