Launch of Childminding Development Grant 2024

Applications are now open for the 2024 Childminding Development Grant (CMDG).

The Childminding Development Grant provides up to €1,000 to assist childminders who are providing a childminding service in their own homes.

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.

The grants are open to all childminders, including those who are planning to open a childminding business in 2024. 75% of the grant is paid in advance to help childminders with the upfront costs of purchasing equipment.

Closing date for applications is Friday 7th June.

For more information on the Childminding Development Grant, please contact Rosaleen Breslin 086 150 3800.
