Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone had any pre-school/school recommendations for the inner north of Canberra.
Thanks in advance.

Public preschools are zoned. My understanding is that you are unlikely to get into an out of zone public school in the Inner North.

Not in my experience. I have put 4 children through inner north preschools and with the last 2 we were living in NSW laugh.gif   My last child went through preschool last year.

I think they get more full each year. this year you would have no hope as external enrolment for watson, hackett or ainslie. Not sure about other inner north suburbs.

Downer has heaps of spots at the moment and Majura (Watson) is  now running 2 classes per session.Technically they are still zoned and we had to have proof of address at enrollment
