Childcare providers say they can’t afford proposed fees cap
Childcare providers will shut services in protest, if a ‘fee freeze’ is introduced this September.
The Federation of Early Childhood Providers has said the 221 million euro in funding pledged for the sector by government ‘does not go far enough’.
According to the Irish Daily Mail, up to 500 providers will shut for three days in September, October and November if their demands aren’t met.
Hundreds are expected to gather outside Leinster House tomorrow in protest, calling for Government to stop the proposed fee cap.
