I was delighted to learn this evening Wednesday, 29th July 2015 from my colleague Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Dr. James Reilly T.D. that Co. Meath will receive €123,866 in grant funding for early years childcare services.

This funding will be distributed to childcare services, in support of this vital sector in Co. Meath.  This capital programme demonstrates the Government’s commitment to the ongoing development of the childcare sector.

The investment is being directed towards making the greatest impact by addressing the most urgent works and supporting the quality of services making the greatest impact for disadvantaged children and communities here in Co. Meath.
Nationally grant funding was made available specifically for community/not for profit childcare services while additional money was made available to both private and community/not for profit childcare facilities to access grants for quality improvement measures, specifically in the area of upgrading IT facilities. In total €123,866 will go to 143 local services in Co. Meath.

The largest grant in Co. Meath is to Athboy Community Childcare Centre Ltd. which receives €42,587 for insulation and refurbishment of their roof.

This news follows last week’s proposals for strategic investment in childcare which aims to improve affordability, quality and accessibility for parents and children across Ireland.
