To be eligible for CCSR, participating pre-school going children must be between 0 and 5 years old on their start date. School-aged children (between 6 and 12 years) can access childcare for the primary school holiday periods only.
The eligibility of the applying parent is determined by a letter from the Department of Justice and Equality.

The total duration of the programme is 60 weeks.

Sessional (2hrs 16 mins to 3 hrs 30 mins) and part-time places (3hrs 31mins to 5 hrs) are provided under the CCSR programme.

A flat rate of €145 per week is payable, for part-time childcare over 4 days per week for each approved child for the eligible duration of their childcare place.

A flat rate of €72.50 per week is payable for sessional childcare over 4 days per week.
