Department of Education: Public Consultation - Pre-School Admissions Criteria
Mon 19 Apr 2021
The Department of Education has published a consultation on Pre-School Education admissions.
This consultation relates to the statutory criterion that all funded pre-school education providers are required to use as part of the pre-school admissions process.
It seeks views on proposals to extend the definition of "children from socially disadvantaged circumstances" to include a wider group of children.
It also seeks views on the proposal to standardise the length of pre-school education sessions and the impact that this may have on the pre-school education admissions process in future.
The consultation will be open until 16th July 2021.
