It might come as no surprise that a new report done by Euro Stat has revealed Ireland has one of the highest costs in early child care education in Europe. Early child care education (ECCE) is education for children of preschool age. In Ireland, the ECCE scheme here allows one year free education for children between 3 and 4 years old, prior to them starting school. Outside this, parents pay the highest fees for for childcare with very little government support at meeting these costs.
