Pre School Education enrolment usually takes place in February on a date notified to parents by local press advertisement.  Children aged 2½ can be enrolled in the Sgoil Àraich if there is sufficient space and their  birthday falls before the 28th of February of the current academic year.  If demand for places outweighs supply, priority will be given to children eligible for their pre school funded place.  Children securing a funded place are entitled to 475 hours over 38 weeks and a maximum of 12½ hours pre school education will be provided in any one week.  Children who enrol in the nursery will be invited into the nursery before they begin to experience a little of the nursery atmosphere and to meet the nursery staff.
