Benefits of Pre-School Education

The Department of Education (DE) seeks to ensure that children get the best start in life through enabling education policies, legislation and funding which provide a range of universal and targeted services to help children achieve, develop and thrive.  Early years education provision makes a distinctive contribution to helping achieve the wider aims of improving attainment and reducing underachievement, especially in literacy and numeracy.  The services are designed to support children and their families by providing positive early years education and learning experiences in safe stimulating and supportive environments.
