Cavan and Monaghan to benefit from increased childcare funding

Parents in Cavan and Monaghan are set to benefit from an increase in childcare funding. Funding of €225,380 has been allocated to childcare providers in the two counties for the creation of additional childcare places, with the aim of providing affordable and accessible childcare for parents in the region.

€90,000 has been allocated to County Cavan, with the remainder of the funding being allocated to County Monaghan. The funding will contribute towards the creation of new places for 0-3 year olds in childcare centres and creches, as well as new school age childcare places, and essential fire safety improvements for community-owned services.

Nationally this will lead to an increase of more than 3,600 childcare places for children up to 15 years of age.
