Written answers (Question to Children)

Some 33 City and County Childcare Committees (CCCs) were established in 2001 to advance the provision of childcare facilities in their local areas. They comprise local representatives from the statutory, community and voluntary sectors, childcare providers and parents. There are now 30 CCCs, as Limerick City and Limerick County CCCs have amalgamated, as have Waterford City and Waterford County and North and South Tipperary. Each committee has a distinct legal identity and board of directors.

The CCCs support the delivery of the childcare programmes operated by my Department. They also perform a range of activities to promote the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) including providing information and support for parents and ECCE settings. They are also responsible for rolling out the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) training programme to pre-school practitioners nationwide. They provide support and guidance to local service providers and parents in relation to the childcare programmes and support quality in keeping with national frameworks and policy objectives. CCCs are also available to co-ordinate and provide training to providers and offer support to families with regard to Early Years services within their respective catchment areas.

The information requested by the Deputy is outlined in the tables below. These tables outline the core funding allocated annually to each CCC from 2015 to 2019, as well as funding provided in respect of AIM and EDI, and in 2019 funding in support of nationwide training in preparation for the forthcoming National Childcare Scheme . My Department also provides additional annual funding to the CCCs to support a number of initiatives including the administration of the Childminding Development Grant, the Parent and Toddler Initiative, Learning Funding, and funding to support the work of the National Early Years Children First Committee.
