Data on pre-school, primary and total teachers along with associated pupil teacher ratios for 2010, 2011 and 2012 have been revised to remove teachers who were double counted as a result of working in both sectors. Therefore these figures have been superseded, please use revised figures in the 2013 publication.

Table 4.1 shows that there were 97,985 children registered for pre-school places funded by the local authority in September 2012, and that 96.1% of eligible children were registered for the ante-pre-school or pre-school year of pre-school education. These figures are based on a series of estimations and some children may be counted more than once if they are registered to receive local authority funded pre-school education at more than one centre.
