Pre-school credit scheme to continue

Mon, 04 Mar 2013

Government has confirmed the pre-school credit scheme will continue for the next academic year.

It was introduced in September after state-funded pre-school provisions were scrapped.

The scheme provides £350 towards the cost of pre-schooling to all parents whose children reach their fourth birthday between this September and the end of August next year.

An additional £800 is available to those who would be eligible for free school meals.

Application forms will be available from May from the government’s website or in hard copy from the Sea Terminal or Hamilton House on Peel Road in Douglas.
