• Minister O’Gorman has launched the Annual Early Years Sector Profile Report for 2020/21

    Posted on May 16, 2022 by in News Updates

    The report is produced annually by Pobal on behalf of the DCEDIY and is the nineteenth in the series to date. The comprehensive report provides a detailed overview of the Early Learning and Care (ELC) and School Age Childcare (SAC) sector in Ireland, including information on the numbers of children participating in DCEDIY funded programmes and schemes, ELC and SAC fees, staff wages, qualifications and turnover within the sector, pertaining to the 2020/21 programme year.

    The report, which plays a central role in informing policy development and in assessing the impact of policy change, is based on a survey of ELC and SAC providers in Ireland and administrative data from DCEDIY schemes and programmes.
