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.

Notification of Placement

There are two dates of notification

Stage 1      

Pre-School providers will issue letters to parents on Thursday 9 May 2019 for receipt on Friday 10 May 2019.  The letter will be issued by the pre-school provider in which your child has been placed.  If your child is not offered a place the EA will write to you and provide you with information on pre-schools which may still have places available at the close of Stage 1 and a request for further preferences for processing in Stage 2.

Stage 2    

Pre-School providers will issue letters to parents on Tuesday 11 June 2019 for receipt on Wednesday 12 June 2019.  The letter will be issued by the pre-school provider in which your child has been placed.  If your child is not offered a place the EA will write to you and provide you with information on pre-schools which may still have places available at the close of Stage 2 of the admissions procedure.
