What is ECCE:

The Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) scheme is a programme with the objective of providing children with their first formal experience of early learning. The programme is delivered to children of pre-school age (2 yrs 8 months to 5 yrs 6 months) prior to primary school.


All children within the relevant age bracket will be entitled to 76 weeks of the scheme (2 full academic years). The ECCE programme is provided for 3 hours per day, 5 days per week over 38 weeks per year. The programme runs in line with the primary school year, September to June.

A capitation rate is paid directly to participating childcare services by Pobal. There is no charge to parents for the childcare hours provided under the ECCE scheme. However, if a child attends for extra hours outside of ECCE, then charges for the extra time will apply.


National Childcare Scheme:

There are two types of subsidies available under the National Childcare Scheme:

Universal Subsidies are available to all families with children under 3 years old. They are also available to families with children over 3 years who have not yet qualified for the free preschool programme (ECCE). This subsidy is not means tested and provides 50c per hour towards the cost of a registered childcare place for a maximum of 45 hours per week.


What you will need to apply online:

A verified MyGovID account

The date of birth and Personal Public Service Number (PPSN) for each of the children you are applying for

Income Assessed Subsidies are available to families with children aged between 24 weeks and 15 years. This subsidy is means tested and will be calculated based on your individual circumstances. Your rate will vary depending on your level of family income, your child’s age and educational stage, and the number of children in your family.

If you (and your partner, if you have one) are working, studying or training, the maximum number of subsidised hours available per week are 45.

If you (or your partner, if you have one) are not working, studying or training, the maximum number of subsidised hours available per week are 20.

In both cases the available hours include hours spent in school or preschool. The remaining hours can then be used for 'wrap-around care'. You can read more about wrap-around care in the Frequently Asked Questions.

What you will need to apply online:
