Launch of new National Childcare Scheme

The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone, has today launched the new National Childcare Scheme.

Speaking at the launch, with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, the Minister said:

"The National Childcare Scheme is a landmark new Scheme for Ireland. It is the first ever statutory entitlement to financial support for childcare. Through this entitlement, the National Childcare Scheme aims to improve children's outcomes, support lifelong learning, reduce child poverty and tangibly reduce the cost of quality childcare for thousands of families across Ireland.” 

The Minister also announced a national Communications Campaign for the Scheme to raise awareness and help both parents and providers to prepare for the Scheme’s opening in October.

A new website was also launched: www.ncs.gov.ie
