Funding Application – Community & Voluntary Sector Group Based Childcare Settings


Call for applications from registered childcare providers to the Northern Childcare Partnership
Early Years Development Fund.

Who Can Apply: Community & Voluntary Sector Group Based Childcare Settings



It has been brought to the attention of the Northern Childcare Partnership (NCP) that DE are intending to  provide funding through Education Restart to support the non-statutory PSEP funded settings in purchasing IT equipment which will assist with remote learning, if necessary, the administration of PSEP and the online pre-school admissions process.

I understand that the non-statutory PSEP funded groups were given advance notice of this in a letter from Siobhan O’Hanlon, Regional Co-ordinator for the Pre-School Education Group  dated 9 October 2020. Further notification from Siobhan will follow mid to late November .

Given this initiative and to avoid any duplication Non Statutory PSEP funded groups in the Northern Trust area should therefore consider making an application for outdoor play, as opposed to ICT, via the NCP Small Grants Scheme 2020.

If you have any queries in regard to this correspondence please do not hesitate to contact the Northern Childcare Partnership Office


Closing Date for Applications Friday 20 November 2020
