Out of school NCS Scheme (National Childcare Scheme)
The national childcare scheme can be accessed by your child during the out-of-school months of July and August and may contribute to reducing the cost of childcare/summer camps. Summer Camps at Mellowes are packed with non stop interactive educational fun for your child. With governments NCS Scheme your child may be able to attend free…..
Introduced by the Irish government in November 2019 the NCS Scheme aims to improve child outcomes, support lifelong learning, make work pay, reduce child poverty and reduce the cost of childcare for families in Ireland. The scheme is available for children aged 6 months to 15 years old. This user-friendly scheme allows parents with a social service card to access the NCS portal online (www.ncs.gov.ie) enter their personal information under income assessed. The system generates a CHICK number for each child with up to 45 hours of subsidised childcare awarded. You are notified of the award granted per hour and this amount is deducted from your childcare costs. It is paid directly to our centre and parents pay the balance.
During school holidays parents can avail of 20 to 45 out of school hours and this is how your child can access our popular summer camps.
This fact means that if a parent is granted a reasonable award all the summer camps being run at Mellowes in July and August could be free for your child or parent’s may only be required to pay a small amount. This is fantastic news for parents for summer 2021. There is a dedicated helpline on 01 9068530 staff are friendly and supportive.
