Pre-school credit applications open

Parents encouraged to apply

Parents of children turning four within the next year are being encouraged to apply for pre-school credit.

The government scheme offers families £3,000 towards nursery education in the year before children start primary school.

Applications are now open for the academic year beginning in September.

In June, Tynwald approved a committee's recommendation that government considers extending the credit scheme to children younger than four.

But concerns were noted that a lack of capacity in nurseries must be addressed first. 

Parents can apply for pre-school credit online via gov.im.
