He's going to school in September!

I called the school that I attempted to enroll Colby in for a pilot project that is taking 18 4 year olds a year earlier then when they would normally start school due to the age cut off. (The age cut off in NS is you have to be 5 by October 1 so Colby missed it by 1 month and 3 days). Only certain schools in the area are offering this and COLBY IS IN! The school that he is registered in, which is also the school he will be going to when he goes to kindergarden advised me today that he is in the program for September. So, he will be going to school Monday to Friday, 9 - 2:30. I have to get him there and back as there is no bus for this program, and I will have to find out if there is a lunch program or if I have to bring him home for lunch. I still have to get my head around the fact that he will be gone all day. Not that I will be bored mind you, it will give me some great time with the baby. But still! HE'S GOING TO SCHOOL! MY LITTLE BOY IS GROWING UP!

Does this mean he is going to school but not primary? And will start primary next year? If so, sounds like the way its done over here, which confuses the hell out of me...

That's exactly what it means. It's a pre-primary program, so he will do this year in this program and then go into primary the following year.
