Table 6.2 below shows that around three quarters of children at eligible pre-schools had access to a GTCS registered teacher during census week (72.8 per cent, down from 75.4 per cent the previous year). This includes children whose access was to a teacher providing only ad hoc or occasional support. Some local authorities only ensure access to teachers for ante- and pre-school children (3 and 4 year olds). The number of children with access to a teacher as a proportion of just ante- and pre-school children (rather than all children) is 83.5 per cent.
