Hi dixont28,

At first glance, they'd be looking at 1st, 6th and 8th. There are cut offs, and typically children start kindergarten at 5 or 6 and so first grade start at age 6, and so on.

The best way to properly place your children would be to contact their prospective schools, and bring in some of their completed coursework.

Good luck.

Thanks for this MagnetMom, really appreciate your reply. At least I now know what to start looking for. Quite a daunting task this. 6 year old is already in Year 1 over here and particularly bright, I hope that gets taken into consideration. Don't even know which area we'll be living in yet either. Only time will tell.
