4 year old Kindergarten Idlehands 2 kids; Perth, Australia 6121 posts

My son is 3 yrs and 3 months old and next year starts 4 year old kindergarten (it's now compulsory in Australia). It is two full days one week and 3 full days the next (9 am- 2.30 pm)



I was just wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions for preparing him for it?



Although, I am the one who needs more help getting prepared for it, so any tips regarding that are welcome too :oops: :P

Wow, Kindergarden 9-2:30?! That's a long day for a 4 year old. I'm pretty sure it's still only half days here but it's 5 days/week.

Yeah, it is a long day. I think they have morning tea/ afternoon tea and lunch breaks... so not too bad. I think I am more nervous then he is lol
