That this Assembly acknowledges the grave disappointment and financial hardship faced by many parents who have been unable to secure pre-school places for their children; recognises the disparity between the number of applications and the number of pre-school places; and calls on the Minister of Education and the Executive to examine urgently the number and distribution of nursery school places and to bring forward proposals to ensure that each child receives a pre-school place in the year immediately before starting school.
