The minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr. Katherine Zappone, TD is pleased to announce the priorities for 2019’s Early Learning and Care and School Age Capital Programms. The Minister has secured €9m for capital grants across 2019.
The budget for the Early Learning and Care and School Age Capital programmes has been set at €6.106m.
A further announcement with details of an additional €3m to be associated with the new Affordable Childcare Scheme will issue early in 2019.

The programmes will be open for application from early learning and care and school age childcare services in February 2019.

Capital funding under the programmes will be delivered under the following three strands:
Strand A: Creation of new places for 0-3 year olds – €4.231m (max. €50,000 per grant).
Strand B: Fire Safety for community early learning and care services – €0.875m, (max. €15,000 per grant).
Strand C: Creation of new school age places – €1m (max. €20,000 per grant).

The focus of the funding in 2019 is to continue the expansion of early learning and care places for 0-3 year olds and school age childcare places where this is most needed.
