Pre schools are also known as playgroups or playschools.
Mostly open for a few hours a day, these are meant to
provide young children with a place to learn and play close
to their homes.
Pre schools are registered and are inspected each year. Pre schools usually cater for 3-5 year olds. They are ideal for children due to start school.
Apart from learning how to socialise with other children, your child will benefit by acquiring skills useful for a good start in school.
Contact your local council for a list of pre schools in your area.
