Childcare plan for healthcare workers was poorly planned

The Children’s Minister, Katherine Zappone has described regrettable that the childcare plan for healthcare workers has been cancelled.


Only six childcare providers signed up for the initiative, out of a potential 5,000.


The scheme was due to help nurses and doctors go to work and have their children minded by registered childcare providers in the home.


Claire Barden, from ‘Learn Early Montessori Academy & Creche’ in Ballymote, has been telling the OceanFM News Room that  the entire process was badly thought out from start to finish.
