Pre-school admissions round opens in March
8 February 2022
On Tuesday, March 1, parents or carers of children born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020 will be able to apply for a place in an early year setting ready to start in 2023.
Applications must be completed and submitted by Thursday, March 31, 2022.
The Welsh Government funds the council to ensure that all children in Powys have access to free part-time early years education from the beginning of the term following the child's third birthday.
Each qualifying child can receive a maximum of 10 hours per week of funded early years education if they attend an approved, funded pre-school education setting.
Children eligible for free part time education will only receive the funded place if they are attending an approved funded pre-school education setting.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Education and Property, said: "All parents and carers should complete this application as soon as the admissions round opens to ensure that their child has a place at their preferred early years / pre-school setting next year.
"If it is not completed in time, this may jeopardise their child's place at their preferred setting."
Parents / carers will need to complete an online application form which can be found here - Apply for Pre-School (3 and 4-year-olds) Early Years Education
