Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Childcare
Access and Inclusion Model (Programme) - Applications for 2017/18 The Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) Programme will be accepting new* applications for children commencing/returning to the ECCE programme in 2017/2018 from Friday 12th May 2017. We advise applicants to ensure that they submit their application as soon as possible.** Childcare providers already in receipt of AIM L7 capitation for children returning in September will be eligible for support. Information on this process will be available in the forthcoming weeks. If you require any additional support, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org For further information on the AIM programme, please visit www.aim.gov.ie * (New applications refer to children who have not applied to the AIM programme before or children who are in receipt of AIM support but will be changing preschool in 2017/18.) **(Please note, in relation to AIM Level 5 applications, it can take up to 8 weeks for equipment to be delivered.)
DCYA have just launched their website on the Affordable Childcare Scheme which includes a section for childcare providers with rates and eligibility, further details are available when you click on I'm a Childcare provider - see new website http://affordablechildcare.ie
New Affordable Childcare Scheme From Septemer 2017, children between the ages of 6 months and 36 months in Tusla-registered childcare will qualify for childcare supports, with further childcare supports for many more children under 15 years old. As every parent knows, the cost of childcare is generally higher when children are under 3 years old - because more hours of care are needed and it is more expensive to provide quality childcare for very young children. So, to help families meet that cost, the Government is introducing new childcare supports for children between the ages of 6 months and 36 months (or until the child qualifies for the free pre-school programme if that is later). In addition, new increased childcae supports will be available to families on lower incomes who have children under 15 years old in Tusla-registered childcare. Remember: These childcare supports are available to everyone, in every region of the country. They apply to children in Tusla-registered childcare onlu (including creches, preschools, day-care centred and registered child-minders). There will be no minimum number of hours and no maximun number of weeks of childcare per year. For further information go to www.affordablechildcare.ie
