What school to send your child to is a huge decision that has long term impact for your child, so its best to do as much research of your options as possible. If you have to return to work, you may be forced to consider your childcare options at an early stage.

The age at which children are able to start at a playgroup or nursery school varies and can be anywhere between the ages of eighteen months and two and a half years.
