It provides children with their first formal experience of early learning prior to commencing primary school.

Pre-School full fees and care will continue to apply for the months of July and August. No, ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Education) deductions apply during these months. Where a child enrols on our Afterschool Programme from the September, the afterschool care and fee rates will apply from September.
