Childcare Funded Programmes
There are two Government funded childcare support schemes in operation.
Childcare services enter into a contract with the Department of Children and Youth Affairs to receive funding to deliver childcare through the support schemes.
- Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) Scheme: If a child is eligible for the September start date but the parent decides not to start him/her for a little longer. The child can still join in on the ECCE scheme but will not get the full 2 years.
- National Childcare Scheme (NCS)- The National Childcare Scheme provides subsidies to help parents meet the cost of quality Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare. It will replace all previous targeted childcare support programmes with a single, streamlined and user friendly Scheme.
