Early Learning Together Preschool Programme

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, this programme has been suspended. We will update this website page as soon as it is available again.

The Early Learning Together Preschool programme offers children and their parents or carers the chance to experience what it’s like to spend time at nursery or preschool, taking part in play sessions and enjoying a variety of fun activities that support child development.

It is for families which have checked their eligibility for free early education for their 2-year-olds and who are eligible, but have not yet taken-up a place at preschool or nursery for their child.

In order to attend, you will need to have been referred. Upon processing of the referral, you will be emailed an access code which you can use to register. If you think you and your child may be eligible to attend, contact your local children's centre:

Please read the leaflet on this page for full details.
