This study sought to determine the nutrition status of children in terms of underweight and its relationship to children’s enrolment in pre-school education. Probability sampling was used to get the sample size. The sample size for this study was 390 children. The findings indicate that statistically, there is no significant relationship between nutritional status in terms of underweight and enrolment in pre-school (p = 0.485> 0.05). This means that being underweight is not related to enrolment in pre-school. The null hypothesis is accepted.
