ECCE Scheme – OverviewPolish

Early Childhood experiences form the building blocks for our children’s future. 


Scallywags believes that the first five years of life are particularly important to a child’s development.  This is when children develop basic learning patterns and abilities that they will use for the rest of their lives. 


The introduction of the “free” Pre-school year is a major development in the area of early childhood education.  As a universal scheme, it is hoped that all children will be able to benefit from a Pre-school place in this highly important development year before they commence national school. 


The Early Childhood Care & Education Scheme (ECCE) provides one year “free” Pre-school education to every child in Ireland aged between 3 years 2 months and 4 years 6 months on 1st September each year. 


Parents  are able to avail of this ECCE scheme for their children on a 38 week or a 50 week per year basis.


At Scallywags we believe that each child deserves the best possible start and at Scallywags caring and learning go hand-in-hand.  We are devoted to providing every child in our care with the very best education and encourage learning in a fun, loving and safe environment.
