Notice: Publication of the revised ruleset for DCYA childcare funded childcare programmes (ECCE, CCS/P/R/T and TEC)

24 July 2017 PIP Announcement

The document DCYA Childcare Funding Programmes – Information and Frequently Asked Questions will be replaced with DCYA - Rules for DCYA Childcare Funding Programmes for the 2017/2018 delivery cycle.

The new document as with the old document forms the basis for PIP’s structures and for Pobal’s management of provider interactions, including compliance.

The document has grown organically over recent years as programmes changed evolved and developed. The Information and FAQ document has presented challenges around clarity around the requirements which has frustrated both providers and programme oversight functions. It has also been very tied to process rather than principle.
