DCYA Press Release: Minister Zappone launches Open Policy Debate on Draft Childminding Action Plan

Minister Zappone launches Open Policy Debate on Draft Childminding Action Plan

Published: 16 October 2019
From: Department of Children and Youth Affairs

The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD, this morning launched an Open Policy Debate on her department’s Draft Childminding Action Plan. The event is one of a series of public consultation events on the Draft Plan.

The Department of Children and Youth Affairs launched an online survey and a call for submissions in August. In the coming weeks a series of focus groups will take place around the country, to give childminders an opportunity to share their views on the proposals.

Designed to complement the focus groups with childminders, today’s Open Policy Debate drew together a wider range of stakeholders who have an interest in the future of childminding in Ireland.

The Draft Childminding Action Plan aims to recognise the valuable work that childminders do and to ensure they can access the supports they need. It proposes a phased programme of reforms over a 10-year period to bring childminding into the mainstream of regulation, funding and support.

Speaking at the Open Policy Debate, Minister Zappone said:

“The National Childcare Scheme will launch in the coming weeks. Only Tusla-registered providers will be able to take part, and only parents who use Tusla-registered providers will benefit. That is essential if we are to act in the best interest of children, provide some level of assurance to parents on the quality of the service, and offer accountability in the use of public funds. However, I want childminders to be at the heart of the National Childcare Scheme; doing so is in the interests of children, parents and childminders; and so, we need to bring more childminders in to the sphere of regulation and of registration with Tusla.”

Minister Zappone continued:

“Because of the significance of the reforms proposed – potentially bringing funding and support to thousands of childminders and to the children and parents who use their services – I decided to carry out a major public consultation on the Action Plan while it is still in draft form. The feedback received will be of great help as we revise and then finalise the proposals.”

Published: 9 October 2019
From: Department of Children and Youth Affairs

  • introduction of additional hours of subsidised income-based childcare from September 2020
  • protection of lone parents to enhance the benefits of the National Childcare Scheme
  • supporting increased uptake of the universal under 3 subsidy and income-based subsidies to families
  • meet the continuing costs of providing two full years of ECCE
  • increased funding to support Children with additional needs to access Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) under the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) and to ensure the full roll out of AIM over the 2 year ECCE programme
  • additional investment for early learning and care and school age childcare inspections (Early Years Inspectorate, Tusla)
  • meet additional costs associated with delivery of schemes, implementation of First 5, supporting good quality in the sector and improving sustainability of services
  • fund to support the introduction of a Sectoral Employment Order and sustainability of Childcare Providers
€31.2m for Tusla …
  • meet increasing demand for existing services and continue to improve overall service performance
  • continue the progress made to reduce the number of children awaiting the allocation of a social worker
  • address significant cost pressures being experienced in residential care
€2m for Youth and Participation Services, including a Special Fund for Youth Action on Climate Justice
€2.7m for reform of the Guardian ad litem service
€0.8m for the extension of the Bail Supervision Scheme

Katherine Zappone TD, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, has announced extra funding of over €94m for Tusla, childcare and youth services, bringing the total investment by her department to €1.6 billion for 2020 from €1.1 billion in 2016.

The additional funding will be targeted at those on the lowest incomes, lone parents and children with additional needs.

The Minister said:

“I am very pleased that we have again delivered as promised on the commitment to continue investing in our children and young people. Today’s €94 million package, at a time of great uncertainty in relation to the impact of Brexit on the economy, represents another significant step in ensuring access to high quality, affordable childcare and ensuring that Tusla is in a position to continue on its programme of service reform and targeted development of key services.”
Childcare

Budget 2020 will see an additional €54.5 million invested into early learning and care and school age childcare programmes, increasing the annual spend to just over €628m per annum from €264 million in 2014. This represents an increase of 9.3% over the 2019 allocation. It is an increase of 138% since 2014.

National Childcare Scheme (NCS)

The additional €54.5m in 2020 will allow for thousands of families to benefit from the new National Childcare Scheme.

From November 2019 families who earn up to €100,000 gross income may benefit (case studies attached).

Families of an additional c. 7,000 children will either receive subsidies for the first time or receive increased subsidies.

Additional Subsidised Hours from September 2020

As well as the full year costs for 2020, extra funding has been secured that will be of particular benefit to lone parents and other working families. Certain families already had the option to stay on existing schemes until end August 2020. They will now be able to stay on those schemes for an additional year until August 2021 or switch to the National Childcare Scheme, depending on whichever will benefit them most.

From September 2020, the maximum hours for the new scheme will increase from 40 hours per week to 45 hours, particularly benefiting parents of school age children who need before school and after school childcare to include time for work and commuting.

Low income parents who are not working or studying will have their hours increased from 15 to 20 hours. This will support our objective of promoting employment and reducing poverty.

As part of this measure, parents who currently benefit from subsidies for 17 hours of School Age Childcare per week (children attending school who need childcare either before or after school) will be subsidised for up to 22 hours of school age childcare.

The Minister said:

“The introduction of the new National Childcare Scheme is a landmark moment for making high quality childcare more affordable and more accessible to families in Ireland. I am particularly pleased that from September 2020 we will be increasing the hours available to children living in disadvantage from 15 hours to 20 hours per week, ensuring that they have access to important early learning opportunities.”
Access and Inclusion Model – children who need additional pre-school supports

Another significant element of the increased early learning and care provision in Budget 2020 is additional funding for the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM). AIM enables children with disabilities to access and fully participate in the ECCE scheme (the two free pre-school years). The increased funding will enable an additional 1,000 children to access targeted pre-school supports, bringing the number of children availing of the scheme to approximately 6,600 children in 2019/20. This is a measure to support equality allowing children who need additional support to avail of early childhood care and education which is critical to optimise their early development.

Additional €2 million funding for Youth Services – Special fund for Youth Action on Climate Justice

The Minister has secured an additional €2 million for Youth Services and Participation. In addition to bolstering funding for existing youth services and schemes, a priority will be to create a special fund for Youth Action on Climate Justice.

It is expected that this will amplify the conversation on climate justice on the international stage. On November 23rd, Dáil na nÓg will meet and will form the newly appointed Comhairle National Executive. Our young people have already agreed that the National Executive’s work for the coming two years will be on the topic of Climate Justice.

The Minister plans to meet with the incoming National Executive and explore with them how she can refresh, renew and strengthen their structures so that they are supported to be centre stage in the conversation on climate justice.

This will involve a special fund through which she will invest in reform of the existing structures and mechanisms so that they:

  • support direct and ongoing engagement and exchange with parliamentarians
  • enable joined-up collaboration with other climate initiatives across Government and beyond

The overall goal will be to bolster our young people to be in powerful, enduring dialogue with decision-makers.

The fund will also support initiatives which are both youth-led and respond to the issues raised by young people.

Tusla

Tusla will receive an increase of €31m in current funding in 2020 bringing its total allocation to €814 million – an increase of 4% over 2019. The extra funding will be used to meet increasing demand for existing services and continue to improve overall service performance. Tusla will also be in a position to continue making progress in reducing the number of children awaiting the allocation of a social worker. One of the more immediate pressures on Tusla’s budget at present is meeting increasing cost in residential care provision and the additional funding being made available in 2020 will assist Tusla in this regard.

The Minister said:

“I strongly support Tusla’s important work in protecting some of the most vulnerable children and families in our increasingly complex and diverse society. I have secured additional funding each year for Tusla since becoming Minister in 2016. The additional resources provided each year are necessary in order to deliver on a significant programme of service reform and have also allowed for targeted development of key services.”

The Minister has again protected a dedicated funding stream for the important work Tusla carries in relation to the Family Resource Centres Programme and the Domestic, Sexual and Gender Based Violence services.

The Minister said:

“I provided additional funding of €1.5 million to the 121 Family Resource Centres across the country in 2019. This brought total funding for the Family Resource Centre Programme to some €18 million in 2019 and I am ensuring that this is made available again in 2020.”
“I also provided an additional €1.5 million in funding last year for Domestic, Sexual and Gender Based Violence services bringing the overall annual funding for these services to over €25 million. This funding has supported Tusla in meeting obligations under the Istanbul Convention and has supported the provision of enhanced and sustainable services. I am ensuring that this is made available again in 2020.”
Bail Supervision Scheme

The Minister also announced additional funding for the extension of the Bail Supervision Scheme. The Bail Supervision Scheme (BSS) is targeted at young people who may otherwise have to be detained in Oberstown. The BSS which has been operating on a pilot basis in the Children Court, Dublin, since November 2016, has recently been evaluated by the University of Limerick. The evaluation, which will be published soon, shows that there was a marked reduction in the levels of re-offending and the majority of the young people enrolled attracted a non-custodial option at their sentencing hearings. There was also a high return to education and or training.

The Minister noted that the additional funding being made available in Budget 2020 will allow her department to begin the process of rolling out the scheme to the courts in other parts of the country.

The Minister said:

“Support for an innovative bail scheme that reduces the risk of re-offending benefits the whole of society. It improves education and training participation. It supports often marginalised groups of parents and caregivers within their homes enabling them to support high-risk young people in their care to meet bail conditions and reduce reoffending.”
Reform of Guardian Ad Litem Scheme

The Minister is strongly committed to the reform of the current “ad hoc” guardian ad litem system and to regulate it to benefit the greatest number of children and young people. Provision has been made for this in the budget. The new guardian ad litem service will be established and run by an executive office within her department.

The Minister said she intends to ensure that a child’s view is always effectively conveyed in the court in childcare court proceedings. It is planned that the new national service which will be operational early in 2021 will facilitate a significant increase in a GAL service within existing resources once fully established.

DCYA PRESS RELEASE: Minister Zappone launches communications campaign on the National Childcare Scheme

 

Monday 23rd September 2019

The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr. Katherine Zappone TD is today (Monday, 23rd September) commencing a communications campaign on the National Childcare Scheme.

The Minister wishes to ensure that parents are aware of the forthcoming Scheme and ready to apply once it opens later this year.  The National Childcare Scheme is set to open to parents and providers on the 29th October with payments flowing from November.

“I am delighted that we are in the final phase of completion of this highly complex and hugely important project. The National Childcare Scheme will assist thousands of families to access high quality and affordable early learning and care and school age childcare.”

The National Childcare Scheme is the first ever statutory entitlement to financial support for childcare in Ireland. It aims to improve outcomes for children, support lifelong learning and working families, reduce child poverty and tangibly reduce the cost of quality childcare for thousands of families across Ireland. Importantly, it will also provide a robust and flexible platform for future investment in childcare in Ireland.

Acknowledging that parents should have choice in how they apply to the Scheme, it has always been designed so they can apply online or by post.  The initial roll out of the National Childcare Scheme will be on a phased basis, as per the expert recommendation of those overseeing the development of the Scheme. The online system will be available from October 29th.  The paper based (i.e. postal) application system will be available in January 2020 for those who do not wish to apply online. From this point on, parents can apply either via the online or the postal route. A Public Services Card (PSC) and verified MyGovID account are required to apply online only.

In relation to the Data Protection Commissioner’s (DPC) report and published findings on certain aspects of the Public Services Card (PSC), the Government and the Attorney General have carefully considered the findings of the report, including the legal basis for the use of the PSC by specified bodies or persons (such as the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs).

The Government has agreed to challenge the findings of the report, as based on the legal advice received, it does not believe the DPC’s findings are correct in law. The advice of the Attorney General’s Office is that there is a strong legal basis for the continued public service wide use of the PSC.

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection is continuing to engage with the DPC on this issue. Officials in the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) will, in turn, continue to liaise with that Department.
In launching the communications campaign for the Scheme, the Minister pledged: “My Department and I are committed to delivering the National Childcare Scheme as planned and, in so doing, assisting thousands of families to access high quality and affordable early learning and care and school age childcare.”

To ensure continuity of service for both parents and providers, the existing childcare support programmes will continue to operate until the launch of the National Childcare Scheme and for the 2019/2020 programme year. Children registered on these schemes will be able to remain on them for the duration of the academic year or switch over to the National Childcare Scheme once it launches.

A Parent Support Centre for the National Childcare Scheme is open and available to assist parents or guardians with any queries regarding the new National Childcare Scheme. It is open Monday to Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm and parents can contact the centre by calling (01) 906 8530. Information on the Scheme is also available on our website at: www.ncs.gov.ie.

 

Full Press Release

What is the National Childcare Scheme?

The National Childcare Scheme is a pathway to truly accessible, affordable, quality childcare. From October 2019 it will replace all previous targeted childcare programmes with a single, streamlined and user-friendly Scheme to help parents meet the cost of quality childcare.

Supports are available for families with children aged between 24 weeks and 15 years who are attending any participating Tusla-registered childcare service, including any Tusla-registered childminder.

For further information relating to the National Childcare Scheme please visit https://ncs.gov.ie/parent

Parents Notice – School Age Childcare

 

Childcare services for school-age children must now register with Tusla, the Child and Family Agency. School-age childcare services have not previously been subject to registration or regulation, so this is a significant step forward in ensuring quality school-age childcare.

 

School-age services must register their service if their primary purpose is to care for children where their parents are unavailable.

All services that currently provide childcare for school-age children must have applied for registration and are urged to start this process straightaway if they have not yet done so. New services must apply for registration at least 3 months before opening.

 

School-Age Childcare services that are registered with Tusla will be eligible to apply to participate in the forthcoming National Childcare Scheme.
