* indicates monthly or quarterly data series
Sri Lanka: Preprimary school enrollment, percent of all eligible children: For that indicator, UNESCO provides data for Sri Lanka from 2009 to 2017. The average value for Sri Lanka during that period was 92.65 percent with a minumum of 82.15 percent in 2009 and a maximum of 100.78 percent in 2017. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
Preprimary school enrollment can exceed 100% due to the inclusion of over-aged and under-aged students because of early or late school entrance and grade repetition.
Definition: Gross enrollment ratio is the ratio of total enrollment, regardless of age, to the population of the age group that officially corresponds to the level of education shown. Preprimary education refers to programs at the initial stage of organized instruction, designed primarily to introduce very young children to a school-type environment and to provide a bridge between home and school.
