20 hours ECE is for three and four year olds enrolled in teacher- led early childhood education services.  The 20 hours ECE programme means no compulsory fees for up to six hours per day and up to 20 hours per week.  Entitlement ceases after 3 weeks continuous absence.

What does 20 ECE Hours mean?

It means that the Government will subsidise up to 20 hours of your child’s childcare fees.

How do we claim the 20 ECE Hours?

All you need to do is complete the section on your child’s enrolment form and we do the rest.
