Enrolments of LBOTE government preschool students by largest language groups (2015-2019)

This dataset captures the diversity of students with a language background other than English (LBOTE) who are enrolled in NSW government preschools.

Data Notes:

  • LBOTE students are those in whose home a language other than English is spoken by the student, parents, or other primary caregivers.

  • Preschools include the 99 preschools attached to government primary/ infant schools and the John Brotchie Nursery School. Not included are the government funded community preschools and long day centres that provide a preschool program, which provide the majority of preschool education in NSW.

  • Students include children enrolled in a preschool or an Early Intervention program that is run by a NSW government school. These government preschool classes provide full-time or part-time schooling at pre-primary level.

  • LBOTE as a percentage of preschool enrolment uses March enrolment data.

  • ‘Other language groups’ includes languages with small enrolments. The total number of languages included in ‘Other language groups’ is specified in Table 7 of the annual Language Diversity publication.
