Fine Gael TD for Galway West & Mayo South

Over €358,000 in Government funding for Childcare Providers in Galway

Investment of €358,000 in childcare services in Galway as part of the Government’s Early Years and School Age Capital Funding Programme. This investment of €358,390, confirmed by Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone TD, will help childcare providers in communities across Galway to fund new childcare places, outdoor play areas and carry out maintenance and repair works.

 

Childcare providers in the communities of An Spideal, An Cheathru Rua, Clarinbridge, Tuam, Kinvara, Loughrea, Gort and Ballinasloe will receive supports to provide new places or carry out enhancement works.

The largest share of the Galway allocation is for Strand 1 with almost €200,000 to provide new childcare places for young children.

Today’s funding is important to ensure we can meet the childcare needs of families in Galway and follows on from the extra supports introduced last September including the Universal Childcare Subsidy of €1,040 per child and the increased supports for families on lower incomes.
