There are 6 stages of learning from Kindergarten to Year 12. Primary school covers Early Stage 1, or Kindergarten, to the end of Stage 3.
Stage 1 includes Kindergarten to Year 2 (Kindergarten is referred to as Early Stage 1).

At New Lambton Public School, our learning programs include whole-class, group and individual activities designed to develop thinking skills, support the development of positive relationships and teach learning skills needed for schooling and later life.
There are six Key Learning Areas taught in NSW Primary Schools. These are English, Mathematics, History and Geography, Science and Technology, Personal Development, Health and Physical Education and Creative Arts. NESA (formerly BOSTES) has produced a useful guide to aid parents in their understanding of the K-6 syllabus documents. Please check Parents guide to the NSW primary syllabuses for more information.
