Principle and conditions

Nursery schools (écoles maternelles) accept children who are too young for compulsory education. Children of three years of age and over, or children who have reached this age during the first quarter of the school year, and children aged four to five, can attend nursery school.

Nursery school is not compulsory.

All Monegasque children, or children with at least one Monegasque parent, can be enrolled on request in a state nursery school or private nursery schools under contract. Non-Monegasque children whose parents live in the Principality will be admitted if places are available.

State education is free; private education is fee-paying.

You must enrol your child or children during the time-periods stipulated by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, unless you have moved to the Principality during the school year .

 

School enrolment periods

For the school year 2019-2020, the enrolment periods at State schools, are from Monday 7 January to Friday 8 February 2019.

Enrolment at the Lycée François d'Assise-Nicolas Barré, an establishment offering private education under contract, takes place from Monday 14 January to Friday 5 April 2019 inclusive.

Outside these periods , you should contact the Department of Education, Youth and Sport.

Choosing a school for your child

You can choose between:

  • State education
  • Private education under contract

In the state sector, the school your child will attend depends on the geographical area  in which you live.  If you wish your child to attend a school in a different area, you should send a letter to the Department of Education, Youth and Sport before 15th June, requesting an area exemption. 

While awaiting a reply, you should enrol your child in the school in your area.
