What is CCSP?
CCS Plus (CCSP) is an expansion of CCS to allow Community/Not for Profit Childcare Providers to make child registrations, for those attending the service, and are eligible under the programme from 2nd January, 2017 onwards.
CCS Private will now come under CCSP.
Who can apply for a CCS Plus contract?
How do I apply?
Only new community/not for profit childcare providers who do not currently have a CCS contract and new private childcare providers will need to apply through their local City/County Childcare Committee for a CCS Plus contract.
I already have a CCS Private contract, do I need to apply for a new CCS Plus contract?
No, Private childcare providers currently on a CCS Private contract are unaffected and do not need to reapply for a CCS Plus contract.
I have an existing CCS contract and do not wish to enter CCS Plus, what happens to my CCS contract?
For existing Community Providers who do not wish to enter into a CCS Plus contract, the existing terms and conditions of the CCS contract remain the same.
I have an existing CCS contract and wish to enter CCS Plus, what do I do?
Please note: the CCS Plus contract cannot be activated until the programme goes live. This date will be announced on the PIP Portal.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Registrations made under the CCS Plus Contract fall under its terms and are aligned also to the terms and conditions currently set out in the Childcare Funding Programmes Information and FAQs for CCS Private registrations. These will be amended to CCS Plus in due course.
