5 year old in full time school ?

Recommended Posts

hey everyone, we are moving to oz in 2021/22 

and my son will be 5 by the time we arrive, do children go to school full time at 5 in oz ? here in south ales it can go from 3-4 as i have been a stay at home mum for 9 years i can hopefully get a job while kids are in school.

also what are the times the kids start and finish school in perth ?

As long as he has turned 5 by 30 June of the year that he plans to start his first year of full time schooling in the January he should be ok. However if his birthday is c Apr/May/June they may suggest he waits a year before starting so he could be 6 starting school. Remember it’s a foreign country with several completely different education systems and a different academic year (Jan-Dec)

usually 9-3 but many schools have before and after school care
