Digital sign up for pre-school places starting in September 2019 goes live on Wednesday January 2nd and closes on the 31st at midnight. These funded places are for children born between 2nd July 2015 and 1st July 2016. Spaces are limited so be sure to get in quick and not leave it until 11.59 on the last day. Once you’ve signed up online you need to bring your child’s birth certificate to the pre-school you’ve chosen as your first choice before February 8th so they can copy it to the EA for verification.

Below is information from the Education Authority about the process and we’re ready to help with any queries you may have just get in touch by phone, email or message us on FB and we’ll get back to you asap! If you don’t have access to the internet you can come in to Chirpys and we’ll help you sign up on our computers or alternatively we can give you a paper copy of the application if you need it. This is the first time applications for pre-school and primary school are being done online so fingers crossed 🤞😄

Visit to sign up and we look forward to welcoming your little one as a Chirpy Chick 🐥 in September 2019! 🤗
