Dear Service Provider,
Following on from our previous announcement, we would like to remind you that the deadline to contract into NCS for the 2020/21 programme year is Monday, 31/08/2020.
If you currently are, or are planning to, register children on NCS for the 2020/21 programme year (as of 24/08/2020), you must have submitted a Funding Agreement for NCS 2020 on the Early Years Hive by Monday, 31/08/2020.
All providers who were contracted into NCS 2019 but who have not yet submitted an NCS 2020 Funding Agreement have been emailed with details on the steps required to submit the application. Please review this email as soon as possible.
Failure to submit an NCS 2020 Funding Agreement on time will result in current registrations being automatically end-dated, and will affect future funding under NCS.
To contract for NCS 2020, go to the Programmes tab on the Early Years Hive, choose NCS 2020 from ‘Available Programme Applications’ and select Start. Please see the ‘Contracting for the National Childcare Scheme’ FAQ for more information on contracting on the Hive.
For further assistance, raise a Service Request on the Hive or email EYPC@pobal.ie.
Early Years Team
