Is there a best time of year to have a baby in terms of the Australian education system? While there is often flexibility in starting school and skipping or repeating years do you think there is a ‘best’ time so that the child does well among peers in school?

  • August is good!

  • I think your bes tto research though you want them to be at there oldest when the term starts so they are slightly more developed than there peers

  • Lol. If only it was that easy!

  • It depends on the state as to when school cut off is I think. For SA it’s April 30, so I think having a baby after this date would be beneficial so they are one of the eldest in their class as they can’t start school until the following year.
