Erasmus+ funding application

This year, a new opportunity to apply for Erasmus+ funding became available to Early Years and School Age Care settings in Ireland.

Preparing a strong application

In January 2024, Early Childhood Ireland partnered with Léargas to offer our members a free Lunch and Learn webinar to help prepare a strong funding application ahead of the deadline in February 2024. Early Childhood Ireland member, Caroline Bohan from Eivers Lane Childcare in Mohill, Co Leitrim, presented on her experience on applying for funding, and Léargas’ Support and Development Officer, Carol Anne Yorke, gave helpful tips on what to do and – importantly – what to avoid in an application.

You can watch a recording of the Lunch and Learn webinar below:


You can also view the Leargas Lunch and Learn webinar slide deck.
