Please note that you must feel comfortable registering before the birth.
Can I pay with childcare vouchers?

Does my child need to be potty trained when moving up from Little EIFA to Nursery Class?
The School expects that children will be toilet trained by the time they start Nursery (Petite Section). Teachers in Nursery (PS) will remind your child to use the toilet throughout the day. When moving up from Little EIFA to Nursery, the Little EIFA staff will ensure that Nursery staff are fully aware of your Child's stage of potty/toilet training. The School reserves the right to delay entry to Nursery class should your Child is not potty trained when he/she enters school.
