Answered By:

The market cost for provision of childcare is high and the current subsidy system is complex. At the same time there are many different models of provision. I have been working with the Department for Education on encouraging more provisions from the schools sector. Further transparency on the capital and revenue funding and simplification of the system would be welcome.
