If your child is aged between 6 months and 36 months you are eligible for a non means-tested universal childcare subsidy of up to €20 per week. That amounts to up to €1,040 per year.

CCS Session Type Universal Band (CCS Band U) (Weekly Subsidy)
Full-time (i.e. 5 or more hours)             €20
Part-time (i.e. 3.31 to 5 hours)              €10
Sessional (i.e. 2.16 to 3.30 hours)         €7
Half-sessional (i.e. 1 to 2.15 hours)       €3.50

For the universal payment of up to €20 per week provide the PPSN and date of birth of the child and the PPSN of the parent(s) to your Centre Manager to register.
The subsidy will be paid directly to the service and will be deducted from the cost of your childcare.


If you are a parent/guardian who:
• holds a medical card or GP visit card;
• is on low income;
• is in school;
• in further education;
• job training;
• or in receipt of a social welfare payment,

Then you may be eligible for assistance with your childcare costs.
