The TEC programmes will permanently close for new registrations at midnight on Friday, 14th February 2020, following the recent commencement of the National Childcare Scheme.
After this date, only TEC registrations with a status of ‘Submitted’, ‘Provisional’ or ‘Approved’ will be eligible to remain on the programme and will be referred to as ‘Savers’. These Saver Registrations will continue to receive relevant funding for the remainder of the Programme Call.
No new entrants will be permitted to the scheme after 14th February, although providers will be required to adjust their days and/or session types for existing registrations to ensure compliance with scheme rules. These changes can only be made during ‘Saver Management Windows’. Please refer to Transitional Rules for the DCYA Targeted Childcare Funding Programmes for more information.
In order to amend registrations during the Saver Management Window, registrations must have a status of ‘Approved’.
The proposed dates for the Saver Management Windows are as follows, and are subject to change:
|14th February, 2020||9th March, 2020|
|3rd April, 2020||27th April, 2020|
|26th June, 2020||20th July, 2020|
Any service undergoing a Change in Circumstances, or required to complete Compliance Amendments will be able to do so during the Saver Management Windows stated above.
