Childminding Development Grant 2022

Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Roderic O’Gorman, today announced the opening of the 2022 Childminder Development Grant.

With a total budget of €250,000, the Childminder Development Grant provides up to €1,000 to assist childminders who are providing a childminding service in their own homes.

The Grant aims to support the enhancement of quality and safety in the service through the purchase of small capital items, equipment, toys or minor adaptation costs. It may also give financial assistance to new or prospective childminders with their initial set-up costs.
