Last updated 4:23 PM on 6 August 2012

Starting school is such a big step. How do I know if my child is ready?

The parent website School A to Z has spoken to a range of teachers about how to make the right decision for your child. Here are some of the key points and questions to ask:

  • Children may enrol in Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five years of age on or before 31 July in that year.
  • All children must be enrolled in school by their sixth birthday.
  • Are they physically ready?
  • Are they socially and emotionally ready?
  • Kids don't need to read or write before they start school.
  • Visit your local school and attend orientation days before you decide.

Watch a video – Ready to start school? - that deals with these issues in more detail.
