Good morning folks,
Childcare stake holders led by Senator Marie Sherlock gathered yesterday to call on the Government to reform the National Childcare Scheme. Government has been urged to boost the pay of childcare workers in Budget 2022 next week, after an Oireachtas committee heard that many of them have taken on second or even third jobs because they can’t make ends meet.
Meanwhile, the Minister for Children has said that he hopes to introduce changes to the National Childcare Scheme next year, in response to concerns that it discriminates against the most vulnerable.
Here's a look at this morning's front pages.
