There are three 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.
Parents apply through the Childcare service of their choice to access one of the support schemes.
- Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) Scheme
- Training and Employment Childcare (TEC) Programmes
- Community Childcare Subvention scheme (CCS)
