Extension of AIM to support additional hours for ECCE aged children – DCEDIY Press Release

Minister Roderic O’Gorman TD today announced plans for an additional €14 million in supports for children with a disability under the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM).
This funding is currently supporting around 7,100 children  to participate in the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) programme, an increase of almost 900 children from the same period last year. Also, from September 2024, ECCE-enrolled children will be fully supported to access and participate in early learning and care settings beyond the time they spend in the ECCE programme – both in term and out of term.  Full Press Release: https://bit.ly/3yLtwDU
