Can I put my Year 4 student in Essentials?

9 August 2021

We recommend starting the Essentials program in Year 5. Maturity plays a big part in this decision. The majority of Year 4 students do not have the attention span and stamina to sit through two hours of intense instruction. Another reason involves the CC program as a whole. Challenge A, which follows the three years of Essentials, requires that a child be twelve years old. When a student starts the Essentials program in Year 4, the family then faces the dilemma of wanting to enrol the student in Challenge A too early, at age eleven.
