Figures reported are children enrolled in a preschool that is run by a NSW government school. However, in NSW, most children receiving a preschool education or early intervention are enrolled at a community preschool (government funded) or in a Centre-Based service which offers a preschool program.
Children aged 3 to 6 years may be enrolled in a preschool program, although programs are typically delivered to 4 and 5 year olds, on the basis that they will be starting school the following year.
