The child must have been offered a place at the preschool program and is actively attending to be counted. Children who are absent in the reference week due to illness or extended holiday leave are considered enrolled if they are expected to return.
A preschool program is a structured, play based learning program, usually provided by a qualified teacher on a sessional basis, primarily aimed at children in the year or two before they commence formal schooling, irrespective of the type of institution that provides it or whether it is government funded or privately provided. Programs may be delivered in a variety of service settings including separate preschools or kindergartens, long day care centres, in association with a primary school etc.
