I didn't know either beforehand to know where they were at the year prior however.
One nephew with an April birthday was 'held back'.
I think part of the problem is that you have to make that decision when booking them in to four year old kinder, which in Victoria back then (he's over 30 now) meant getting in quick. Like our daughter's was, it was probably a case of being able to book after the second birthday, then first in best dressed. I believe that's changed, but it's why our late Nov daughter missed out on the four year old kinder 5 x mins walk away, and we had to go to one which involved a drive over a rail line and two major road, which could take 20 mins in the car. Daft system.
Maybe they went to enroll for 3yo kinder, found they didn't have a snowflake's hope in hell for an April kid, but would pretty much be first on the list for the following year, and were told that was pretty standard.
