Community Childcare Subvention Resettlement

From: Department of Children and Youth Affairs

What the Community Childcare Subvention Resettlement is

To support Programme Refugees in their resettlement and integration into Irish society, childcare funding for this group is incorporated into the existing CCS and CCSP Programmes.

This enables parents to be free to attend a language and orientation course within their reception centre for eight weeks and then for a full year following their move into the community (ie 60 weeks in total).

How to qualify

To qualify for CCSR, participating preschool going children must be between 0 and 5 years old on their start date.

School-aged children (between 6 and 12 years) can access childcare for the primary school holiday periods only.

The eligibility of the applying parent is determined by a letter from the Department of Justice and Equality.

The total duration of the programme is 60 weeks.

Sessional (2hrs 16 mins to 3 hrs 30 mins) and part-time places (3hrs 31mins to 5 hrs) are provided under the CCSR programme.

Rates of payment

A flat rate of €145 per week is payable, for part-time childcare over 4 days per week for each approved child for the eligible duration of their childcare place.

A flat rate of €72.50 per week is payable for sessional childcare over 4 days per week.
