The Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) has made funding available for Parent and Toddler Groups for the development of their services. Galway Childcare Committee has received confirmation of our 2019 Grant Allocation for Parent & Toddler Groups.
Applications for funding under this scheme should only be made by Parent & Toddler Groups that are organised on a not for profit basis and involve the participation of parents in the community. Grants will normally range from €100 to €1,000.  Existing groups can apply for a maximum grant of €800.  New start up groups may apply for a maximum grant of up €1000.
Funding will be available for toys, equipment and books, training for parents, e.g. paediatric first aid, committee skills, parenting courses, children’s activities, e.g. arts and crafts and music. Limited funding will be available towards insurance, rent or minor refurbishment, up to a maximum of 30% of total funding.
