Kindy kids tell us their age

Your child can go to kindy in the year before they start school.

How old is that?

We asked some Queensland kindy kids to tell us their age. This is what they told us:

  • ‘I’m three and a half.’
  • ‘I’m three and a half.’
  • ‘Four.’
  • ‘Four.’
  • ‘Four and a half.’

Your child’s age when they start kindy will depend on the month and year they were born.

There’s an easy way to find out when your child can start — just use the kindy calculator.
