I got the opportunity to raise the cost and availability of childcare in our debate with the Minister in the Seanad.
As I said for many families childcare can be a second mortgage.
I also raised the issue many of our smaller providers are having with funding for the ECCE scheme, many I spoke to in Kildare cannot afford to run the scheme any longer and the promised independent investigation by the Minister must happen quickly and must recognise the problems and cost of running this scheme.
Childcare costs must be further addressed, parents are facing very difficult choices.
Our very important community childcare providers must be supported.
As always you can give me a shout on 0598640287 or by email on email@example.com.
