what age do kids start school in australia? What is pre school provision like eg childminders, nurseries etc? Is there any easy way to work out how good a school is like the league tables and ofsted's that we have in England? How long are the school holidays? What age do kids leave school? What exam system do the Aistralians use, what I means do the kids sit exams or is a diploma or contiuous assessment???
We have many more questions but answrs to the above will be really useful for us and we are at the thinking about moving to Australia stage and we have two young children one 3 months old and one three years old. One of the motivating factors for moving to Australia is to offer a better lifestyle to them....how realistic are we being????
All help and advice welcome. The areas we are interested in moving to are either Adelaide, Melbourne or Brisbane if any one has any views on these areas with children in mind please pass your views on to us.
