What is a City/County Childcare Committee (CCC)?
The Department of Children and Youth Affairs has commissioned a new website to signpost childcare providers and parents to their local City/County Childcare Committee.
The 30 CCCs, which are located nationwide, coordinate the implementation of the national childcare policy and programmes at a local level on behalf of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.
A key role of the CCCs is to facilitate and support the development of quality, accessible childcare services for the overall benefit of children and their parents by taking a child-centered and partnership approach.
The new website is now live and can be accessed at the following address https://myccc.ie/
