“I encourage everyone interested in the future of childcare, from parents to providers, to come along to this meeting on the 23rd of June and have your say. Fine Gael wants to hear from you as we reshape childcare for the future.

“This is the first of two public meetings taking place in Dublin West to inform and consult about Fine Gael’s work in the area of childcare reform. A second meeting is being held in Ongar Community Centre on Thursday 30th June at 7:30pm.

Senator Currie concluded, “My public meetings will elaborate on all of these proposals and it is open to anyone who wishes to attend, to listen and to contribute. Come along, have your say, and help to shape the future of childcare.”
