ECCE 2019/2020 Optional Extras
In light of the revised Optional Extras Guide which was uploaded on PIP on 3rd of July, there have been changes to allowable and disallowable optional extras (page 3) for the 2019/2020 programme year. The rule in relation to ad hoc extra times requested by parents has also been revised (please see PIP notice dated 3rd July 2019).
As many service providers had submitted their ECCE fees list on PIP before these changes were issued, we would ask that you ensure that your fees list is compliant with the changes. Your CCC may have communicated to you prior to 3rd July that your fees list was approved.
In light of the updated Guide can you please ensure your fees list complies with the changes. If it does not can you please amend and resubmit on PIP.
In addition, following consideration of feedback the Department of Children and Youth Affairs has decided to allow 1 paid trip for ECCE programme year as an optional extra for 2019/2020. We would also like to remind all services (sessional, part time, full time) that they must offer an ECCE ONLY SESSION (for which there is no charge) on their fees list.
