Childcare centres lobby for renewed staffing grants

The delegation of childcare supporters from Kerry who met with The Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Equality and Law Reform feel their view point was very well received. They now hope that the pressure on the Government will increase in order to continue providing staffing grants to childcare centres across the county. The grants are due to cease in September and childcare groups claim that without them many centres will be unable to survive. Kay O Mahony is with the South Kerry Childcare Network.
