What age is my child eligible for the ECCE scheme?
If your child is 2 years and 8 months of age before the 31st August of the year they are due to start pre-school, they are eligible for the ECCE scheme. The ECCE scheme entitles children to two years of free pre-school, providing they do not reach the safe of 5 years and 6 months before starting Primary School.
How long does your pre-school run for each day?
Our pre-school facilities run from 9am-12pm, Monday to Friday. If you need additional childcare after this, we offer full day-care childcare facilities.
Do I have to send my child to pre-school?
No, it is not required to send your child to pre-school. That being said, however, there are many benefits to having your child attend pre-school, including the development of greater social skills, higher levels of education, and better integration into primary school.
