    the free pre school provision under this Programme when they are within the qualifying age range which is 3 years and 2 months to 4 years and 7 months in the September of the relevant year The recent Budget decisions mean that children can access the ECCE Programme from the time they are 3 years of age until they start primary school This extended provision when fully rolled out will mean that children will have access to free education either in pre school or primary school from the age of three In addition the number of children benefiting from free pre school provision is expected to increase from around 67 000 to 127 000 in a given programme year In order to provide the early years sector with the time to expand provision to meet the increased demand a decision was made to introduce this new measure from September 2016 This timeframe will allow pre school providers to make any necessary infrastructural or service changes and to put in place extra staff resources to accommodate the additional demand The Community Childcare Subvention CCS Programme is also implemented by my Department and supports disadvantaged parents parents in low paid employment and parents in training or education by enabling those who qualify to avail of reduced childcare costs at participating community not for profit childcare services Due to economic constraints Budget 2012 closed the CCS programme to new applications from community not for profit childcare services wishing to enter the programme and to the expansion of services by existing providers Under Budget 2016 I lifted these restrictions and provided 16 million in additional funding to further expand the CCS programme to include its roll out to private childcare providers in a targeted manner This additional investment will create a further 8 000 places in areas identified as being in significant need of CCS provision To meet the increased demand for childcare that will result from this very significant investment Budget 2016 also provides funding for a number of measures to improve the quality of childcare and to build capacity in the sector These measures include a restoration of capitation rates to pre 2012 levels for pre school providers delivering the ECCE Programme funding to upskilling the workforce and funding for the Early Years Capital Programme 2016 In addition and in recognition of the significant barriers childcare presents to parents wanting to take up employment education or training and the complexities of working through the different childcare programmes funded by my Department the Budget 2016 package also funded the establishment of a dedicated Project Team to develop a single Affordable Childcare Programme to provide working families with good quality childcare at a cost they can afford Work on the Affordable Childcare Programme will begin immediately so that it can be in place in 2017 This single programme will replace the existing CCS along with the Training and Employment Childcare programmes comprising the After School Childcare Childcare Education and Training Support and Community Employment

  • No Independent Oversight in New Refugee Law – Thomas Pringle TD
    on Social Policy and Public Sector Reform The Deputy will be aware that the Report of the Working Group identifies the excessive length of time in the protection process as the most significant issue facing applicants in particular those in the Direct Provision system Notwithstanding the deliberations of the Cabinet Sub Committee on this matter I am committed to tackling the lengthy delays in the protection system A number of initiatives have already been taken to deal with the number of cases on hand including the scheduling of interviews on Saturdays the transfer of subsidiary protection application processing to the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner the establishment and subsequent enhancement of a legal panel to assist the Commissioner with this work and the appointment of additional members to the Refugee Appeals Tribunal As I also mentioned in my response to the Deputy on 10 November last one of the key recommendations in the Working Group Report is the early enactment of the International Protection Bill which will provide for the introduction of a single application procedure for international protection which is specifically aimed at addressing the length of time persons spend in the protection process The Bill provides for the transfer of responsibility for the processing of protection applications from the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner to the Department of Justice and Equality It is intended to establish a Protection Office within the Department for this purpose The Bill also provides for the establishment of an independent International Protection Appeals Tribunal The new procedure will significantly streamline and speed up the processing of protection applications and will reduce the length of time that persons spend in the Direct Provision system Existing best practice will be protected and embedded within the new regime The Deputy will be aware that
