Parents will benefit from a commitment to increase funding for early learning and childcare by €54m in Budget 2020.

Finance minister Paschal Donohoe said this will support the Early Childhood Care and Education scheme (ECCE) for pre-school children and support the previously announced National Childcare Scheme (NCS), which is set to open to parents and providers on October 29.

NCS is a new statutory entitlement to financial support for childcare in Ireland. It aims to improve outcomes for children, support lifelong learning and working families.
