ECCE Scheme


The Early Childhood Care & Education Scheme (ECCE) is a Government funded program introduced in January 2010, entitling every child to a free Pre-School place for the year before they start primary school. We provide ECCE places at GrassRoots Preschool and are currently enrolling now for September 2015.

There are no additional PreSchool fees at our PreSchools, when your child is eligible for ECCE Scheme.
Generally for your child to be eligible for their free preschool place, they must be between 3 years and 2 months and 4 years and 7 months on September 1st of the year they will be starting.
