It is that time of year when many families are beginning to attend school orientations, interviews and information evenings. This is a good time of year to check in with your child's teacher (if you have not already done so) about how your child's learning is progressing at kindy and their readiness to move on to the next phase in their educational journey. If you feel that your child would benefit from another year of kindergarten, you can find information about this process here.
Please be aware that as of 2015 the process for seeking a delayed exit from kindergarten has changed.
These changes are outlined on Office of Early Childhood Education and Care website (link above). It is important that you speak with your child's teacher and/or the office at the kindy as soon as possible if you are thinking about a delayed exit as enrolments for 2016 have now commenced.
