Childcare Facilities Plan Protest Action

Hundreds of childcare providers in Wicklow and across the country are planning to close their doors for 24 hours, in protest at what they say is a 'crisis' facing the sector.

A group of providers are to meet tomorrow to discuss the final details of the plan, which is likely to take place in the next month or so.

It would involve thousands of childcare professionals who are part of groups including SIPTU and the Federation of Childhood Providers.
