Ireland offers free primary and secondary education to asylum-seeking children. Talk to the accommodation centre management who will help arrange schools for your children.

Education is compulsory for children in Ireland from the ages of six to 16 or until students have completed three years of second-level education.

The Irish education system is made up of primary, second, third-level and further education. State-funded education is available at primary and secondary levels.

Pre-school education is usually provided by a mix of publicly and privately funded childcare facilities or providers. The Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Scheme provides free early childhood care and education for children of pre-school age above the age of three.
