Island's pre-schools 'falling behind'

The Isle of Man is 'behind the times' when it comes to early years learning, according to the Education Minister.

Graham Cregeen has previously hinted he's keen to introduce a pre-school curriculum in a bid to improve education of very young people in the Island.

It was also something he discussed with his counterparts at a British-Irish Council meeting last year.

Provision for under 5-year-olds has been administered by the private sector for a number of years in the Island.

But Mr Cregeen says any reforms aren't likely in the immediate future.
