How long do I have to wait (ingame/real time) until a new born child will become a laborer?

Children advance at age 10, becoming either Laborers or Students.

They will only become Students if there is a school with space available. Students then become Laborers at (around) age 17.

Age, however, is not all that easy to pinpoint. On average, citizens will age roughly ever 2.4 seasons, or 5 times per "year" (which is 12 seasons).

Doing the math, on average, it's 2 years (or 24 seasons) per 10 "age", and 3.4 years (or 40.8 seasons) to age 17.
