Pre-school Admissions Guide

Although pre-school isn't compulsory it has benefits. Our guide will help you understand more about the process and what to expect when applying for a place in pre-school for your child.

Living outside Northern Ireland at the time of application

You can make an application for a Pre-School place. However, priority is given to children residing in Northern Ireland at the time of their proposed admission.

If you are moving to Northern Ireland, when completing the application, you must use the address you are residing at the time of the completion of your application.

The Board of Governors or Management Committee can only use a new address once your child is residing at the new address.

You should notify the EA in writing by post or email preschooladmissions@eani.org.uk and
 you will need to provide verification of your move.

Accepted documents to verify your new address include:

House move : 

  • Tenancy agreement
  • Rates bill
  • Sale of house agreement
