The childcare provider that my 3 year old son attends has advised me that they believe my son should be starting 4 year old kindergarten next year. His date of birth is the 19/5 which is two and a bit weeks past the Victorian cut off of having turned 4 before the 30 April of the year that they commence 4 year old kinder.
The manager believes that my son would be better off moving to the next level based on their assessment of his development and that I need to seek an exemption from the Education Department for him to start earlier.
I am little confused as to what I should do especially since I didn’t have this problem with my eldest whose birthday was in July! Can any share their experience or recommendations as to how I should proceed?
