Pre-schools must advertise places
Published 14/01/2010 | 05:00
I read with interest that 30,000 children entitled to free pre-school have not yet signed up for their places (Irish Independent, January 11).
It needs to be pointed out that these are not just free childcare places.
The Early Childhood Care and Education Scheme is available to children in all participating pre-school settings whether that be a creche, playschool, pre-school or montessori.
