€440,000 for Childcare services in Meath

Regina Doherty announces €1m in minor works grants for Meath Schools

Childcare services Meath are to receive €440,000 in extra funding

This much needed financial boost comes at a key moment in Ireland’s move to accessible affordable quality childcare. I hold the provision of quality, affordable and accessible childcare as a very highest priority, ensuring local children get the very best start in life.

This funding will benefit children, families and providers under our Early Years programmes, and will contribute to the development of an infrastructure that is ready to meet the radical new approach to subsidising childcare outlined in Budget 2017.
