Nursery Schools and Kindergartens in Paphos0
The education system in Cyprus starts with pre-primary, followed by primary, secondary and higher education. Since 2004 it became compulsory for children to attend pre-primary school (also known in Cyprus as Nursery Schools and Kindergartens) for a period of one year before admission to primary school. All schools are co-educational.
There are three types of pre-primary Schools in Cyprus for children between the ages of three years, up to five years and eight months of age, and all must be approved by the Ministry of Education and Culture, which also supervises and regulates them. The three types are: Public Kindergarten, Community Kindergarten, and Private Kindergarten.
