We're moving back to Australia in April. I will be in North NSW for a couple of months and then moving to Brisbane hopefully by June/July.
DS is currently in Kindergarten here in the states (started Sept08). His B'day is in May, so I think officially he can go to 1st grade this year, but we're worried that with the moves, new environment, new family etc, that putting him in the 2nd half of 1st grade would be too much for him. He's a smart kid, but we're also not in a rush, so why unnecessarily rush him?!
So first question: holding him back for a year, so 1st grade next year, is that ok? is that acceptable in Queensland? (I'm guessing it's fine)
Also, from what I've read online, looks like there is a prep-class (Kindergarten) that is with primary schools. Is this right? So I could enroll him in the last half of Kindy this year and then off to 1st grade next year.
Any Queensland specific info. would be great. Thanks.
