Childminding Development Grants for 2024

Applications for the 2024 Childminding Development Grant closes 7th June 2024.

The Childminding Development Grant provides up to €1,000 to assist childminders who are providing a childminding service in their own homes.  The grants are open to all childminders, including those who are planning to open a childminding business in 2024.

The Grant aims to support childminders to enhance quality and safety in their service through the purchase of toys, childcare equipment, safety equipment, equipment to support inclusion and STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths), as well as IT equipment to assist childminders to engage with training and registration processes later in the year.

For further information about the Childminder Development Grant or the National Action Plan for Childminding, visit www.gov.ie/childminding or contact your local City or County Childcare Committee.
