The deadline for applications for new services to participate in the childcare programmes from September 2014 was the end of March 2014. In order to be eligible, ECCE services were required to be registered with the Child & Family Agency.
Given the different procedures underlying the registration process (as opposed to the notification process), the Department of Children & Youth Affairs (DCYA) has extended the deadline for new service providers wishing to apply to participate in the ECCE and/or CETS programmes from September 2014. Such services will only be required to produce evidence that they have applied for registration with the Child & Family Agency.
No contract will be issued until the service has been successfully registered. In the event that registration has not been completed by September 2014, the service will not be permitted to open by the Child & Family Agency.
THE NEW DEADLINE FOR SERVICES TO SUBMIT APPLICATIONS TO WICKLOW CCC WILL BE FRIDAY 30TH MAY 2014
Please return documents to Wicklow CCC before that date if all documents are in order.
These are the documents needed for completion:
When they are received by the DCYA, applications will be examined for (a) staff qualifications (b) notification to TUSLA, the Child & Family Agency (c) Tax Clearance Certificate.
