Over 40% Of Childcare Providers Not Signed Up To New Affordable Care Scheme

More than 40 per cent of childcare providers have not signed up to the new affordable care scheme.

The Irish Examiner reports tens of thousands of children could miss out on the 1,000 euro a year grant.

Parents may have to move their children to another creche if they want to avail of the support.


Some childcare providers have said they won’t participate in the scheme because of administration costs and a lack of information about it.
