This year the ECCE Programme will be managed on the Early Years Hive, and all ECCE Programme related activities must be completed https://earlyyearshive.ncs.gov.ie/
All service providers offering the ECCE Programme for the 2020-2021 programme year must complete every step of the on boarding process on the Hive before they can begin the ECCE readiness process. This means that each service provider must have an Early Years Hive account. Quick Guides and videos are available on the Early Years Hive to assist services with this process.
Once the on-boarding process is completed, Service Providers must also complete the ECCE specific readiness steps before a programme application can be submitted. A Quick Guide on completing the ECCE readiness steps is available https://earlyyearshive.ncs.gov.ie/useful-links/for assistance with this process. A separate Quick Guide is available to assist you with completing the ECCE Fees List and Service Calendars on the Early Years Hive.
DCYA ECCE Programme Rules for 2020/21 will be made available shortly.
