DS is due to start prep in 2018 and I'm trying decide what school to send him to . At this stage, he will probably just do kindy at the long day care centre that he attends.
Does anyone have any experience with Wishart State School, John Paul College, Redeemer Lutheran College or Citipointe Christian College?
Any insights would be appreciated. Suggestions for other schools also appreciated. TIA

All of those schools have a great reputation and I know people with kids at each who are extremely happy with them. My kids go to one in the ssme area (Calvary Christian College) and we love it. I have another starting Prep in 2018 as well and he will be starting at the schools Pre-prep next year.
We love the close knit community feel of the school and the fact they use the Primary Years Program (IB program) has been fantastic for my boys.
The Springwood Campus is a Pre-prep to yr 6 Campus and then the school provides a free intercampus coach to take the older kids to the bigger campus at Carbrook for Middle and Senior school. My eldest started year 7 this year and has been using this service.

OP redeemer is also a wonderful school.
The others are also good. I don't know much about Wishart though. If you aren't seeking a Christian school then JPC is probably a better option.
You'll only know if you go in and get a 'feel' from the place.

Thanks for the input. I'm going to see some schools in the next couple of weeks so hopefully it'll be clearer then.
