The free Pre-School Year Scheme in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) starts in January 2010. Children born between 2nd February 2005 and 30th June 2006 will be eligible for the 2010 scheme. Parents of children in this age range can avail of the pre-school year by enrolling their child in a local participating pre-school service, and any parent who has not yet enrolled their child should do so by 20th January 2010. Almost all pre-school services in Roscommon are participating in the scheme and many of these are advertising that they still have places available.
