Parents in Rhondda Cynon Taf have lost their latest legal challenge against the council's plan to remove full-time nursery education for three-year-old children.
Campaigners' application for a judicial review over the council's decision was dismissed by a High Court judge.
From September, nursery education for three-year-olds will be cut to part-time, up to 15 hours per week - before full-time provision begins at age four.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council says the changes will save £2.16m per year.
Its plans to cut nursery provision have been hugely controversial over the last 18 months. Last May, parents won a previous legal battle, with the council judged to have acted unlawfully in its decision-making process.
The council re-introduced its plans earlier this year and, this afternoon, Mrs Justice Patterson ruled it had carried out a fair consultation exercise on this occasion.
Parents now say they will discuss whether to appeal the decision.
