Principle and conditions

Education is compulsory for all children aged from six to sixteen who are Monegasque nationals or resident in Monaco. It is free in the State sector, fee-paying in the private sector.

Nursery school (école maternelle) is for children who have not yet reached the age for compulsory school attendance. Nursery schools accept children aged three and over, or who will reach this age in the first quarter of the school year, and children aged four and five.

Nursery school is not obligatory.

All Monegasque children, or children who have at least one Monegasque parent, must be offered a place on request in a State nursery school. Children whose parents live in the Principality but are not Monegasque nationals will be offered a place subject to availability.

Depending on the availability of places, children will be enrolled in their local school as a priority.
