Nova Scotia families can access free, universal play-based pre-primary education for four-year-olds. This is an investment in our youngest Nova Scotians that will help them transition more easily into their school years, and identify those who will need additional supports once they begin school a little earlier.

Children who will be turning 4 years old on or before December 31 in the year they start pre-primary.
