Beehyve Creche operates the ECCE Scheme. This provides subsidised rates of childcare for two years before your child starts primary school. The scheme runs on a pro rata basis, based on the number of days your child attends the service. The subvention is deducted from your regular weekly or monthly fees and you pay the balance.  The scheme runs for 5 days a week for 38 weeks starting in September and finishing at the end of June.

YMCA Childcare Beehyve Creche offers funded childcare services under the TEC programme for ETB/VTOS/Solus and Momentum students.The objective of the TEC Programmes is to support parents on eligible training courses and eligible categories of parents returning to work, by providing funded childcare places. There are three TEC Programmes as follows:

The childcare subsidy is available to all children aged from 6 months to the first eligible point of entry to the ECCE programme. This scheme is administered via an enhancement to the CCS scheme.
The maximum weekly universal childcare subsidy is €20. As CCS subsidies are currently paid according to session type, i.e. full-time, part-time, sessional, half-sessional, this maximum weekly universal subsidy rate of €20 will be paid on a pro-rata basis according to session type.
