The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY) and Pobal have launched the Annual Early Years Service Profile 2020/2021 on Early Years Hive.
The survey is now in its 19th year and continues to be a key resource, giving a detailed snapshot of the sector and providing successive governments with critical data to inform planning, policy-making and investment.
This year’s survey in particular will help government understand the impact of COVID-19 on the Early Learning and Care (ELC) and School-Age Childcare (SAC) sector.
It includes a supplementary questionnaire on income and costs and, for the first time, participants can now complete the survey through Irish.
Service Providers can access the survey through Early Years Hive.
The deadline for completion is 5pm on Friday 11 June 2021.
Annual Early Years Sector Profile Survey reports from previous years can be found here.
