Early Childhood Care and Education Programme (ECCE)
The ECCE Scheme is a two-year pre-school programme which is available to all children within the eligible age range.
National Childcare Scheme (NCS)
The NCS Scheme provides parents/guardians with subsidies to support Early Years and School Age Childcare. There are two subsidies available under this scheme: a Universal subsidy and an Income Assessed subsidy.
You can read more about the subsidies offered here.
A Subsidy Calculator is also available to assist you in estimating your eligibility for the programme.
You can also apply for the NCS Scheme online.
Note: TEC and CCSP schemes have been replaced by the NCS. However, our school can facilitate existing TEC/ CCSP children. No new applications can be made to the TEC/ CCSP schemes.
Access and Inclusion Model (AIM)
AIM is a model of supports which ensures children with disabilities have equal access to the ECCE Programme. The supports offered under this programme are tailored to the needs of the individual child to allow them to participate fully within the Early Years environment. AIM is a child-centred model and one which does not require a formal diagnosis of disability.
Further information about this programme is available on the AIM website.
