PRESS RELEASE FROM MINISTER O’GORMAN – INCREASE TO AIM CAPITATION

PRESS RELEASE FROM MINISTER O’GORMAN OF THE 23rd AUGUST 2022

The Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth announced an increase to support children with disabilities access State-funded pre-school. Please see press release for your information.

Additional capitation, provided through the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) to enable a lower adult-child ratio, will increase by 14% from September 2022, rising from €210 per week to €240 per week. AIM provides a range of both targeted and universal supports, to enable children with disabilities to participate meaningfully in the ECCE programme. The increase in capitation will enable a continued alignment between AIM funding and wider funding for the ECCE programme, which will be supplemented by a new funding scheme – Core Funding – also from September 2022.
