CCSP and TEC closing dates
Whilst CCSP will permanently close for new registrations at midnight Friday 25th October 2019 if you want your registrations to be included in the first ‘saver management window’ (explained below) make sure that all registrations are completed by next Friday the 11 October.
After 25 October only CCSP registrations with a status of ‘Submitted’ , ‘Provisional’ and ‘Approved’ will remain on the programme. These will be called ‘Savers’.
After 25 October you will be able to adjust days/sessions etc. for your ‘savers’ but only during certain times, the ‘saver management windows’. The transitional rules for the DCYA targeted childcare funding programmes give further information about this (Please click here) .
Registrations must have an approved status for you to be able to amend them during the saver management window.
If you want to be able to amend registrations during the first saver management window, you must have your registrations completed by Friday 11 October. Otherwise Pobal cannot guarantee that the registrations will be approved in time and you will have to wait until the next window to amend them.
TEC programmes will remain open for new registrations until February 2020.
The proposed dates for the CCSP Saver Management Windows are as follows, and are subject to change:
- October – 29th October 2019 – 11th November 2019

CCSP 2019 additional preliminary payments
Due to the large number of CCSP registrations being made at the moment, there are delays in getting them completed and approved. In these cases, there is a delay in payments for services. The DCYA have agreed to an additional preliminary payment to be made. The payment will represent the value of 4 weeks of CCSP registrations which were provisional on 27 September.

Applications for the Inclusion coordinator increased capitation are now open on PIP under the AIM tab. The deadline for applications is 31 October. Any applications received after that date will not be eligible for backdated payments.
Services that were in receipt of funding in previous years need to reapply.
