The DCEDIY (Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth) are responsible for the adminstering of the Government Childcare Programmes, namely ECCE, CCSP, TEC and NCS. These government programmes help Irish families access childcare in Ireland at a reduced rate.

Providers will access these programmes through the Programmes Implementation Platform Portal and EY Hive, an online administration system for the national DCEDIY Childcare Funding Programmes.
