Welcome to Graiguecullen Parish Childcare Centre CLG

We are a Community not-for-profit organisation, who offer quality childcare through the Community Childcare Subvention Scheme and the National Childcare Scheme. We also cater for CEC/SOLAS/ETB participants.

Our mission is to value the ability, individuality and cultural background of all children by providing each child with the opportunities they need to reach their full potential as active learners within an inclusive ethos/culture.
At GPCC CLG, we achieve care and inclusion in education by continually reviewing an anti-bias approach that is implemented by the early childhood service, and by working in partnership with families, children and the early childhood team, both individually through reflective practice, and in consultation with children and their families, so as to ensure that the education and care provided is fully inclusive of all children, families and agencies that attend and use our service.

We look forward to working with you and your child throughout the coming year.


We offer the National Childcare Scheme to parents/guardians with children aged 2 ½ to 6th class who are enrolled in our Service. Call into the office for more information.

To make an online application you will need to have a verified MyGovID. Your verified MyGovID gives you safe, secure online access to a range of Irish Government services, including the National Childcare Scheme.If you already have a verified MyGovID, click on the Sign In tab at the top of the screen. You can then use your verified MyGovID to log in and start an application.

If you don't have a verified MyGovID, here's how to get one:

Before you can get a verified MyGovID you will need:

  1. A basic MyGovID account
  2. A Public Service Card (PSC)

The steps below show you how to get a basic MyGovID account and a Public Services Card.

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DEASP have suspended appointments to apply for Public Services Cards. If you already hold a Public Services Card and a basic MyGovID account, you can still create a MyGovID verified account. For further information on how to do this, please log in to your MyGovID basic account.

Even if you do not have a PSC Card you can still apply for the NCS by post. For information on how to apply by post please contact the Parent Support Centre on 01 906 8530, Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.

If you already have a basic MyGovID account and a Public Services Card but do not have a verified MyGovID account, you can go straight to Step 4.

Step 1: Go to mygovid.ie and create a basic MyGovID account.

Step 2: Once you have created your basic MyGovID account, log in to mywelfare.ie to make an appointment to get your Public Services Card. This is done at your local Intreo Centre and you can pick a location, date and time that suits you.

Step 3: During your Public Services Card appointment you will be asked to verify your mobile phone number. This will be useful when you are verifying your MyGovID account. Your Public Services Card will then be sent to you in the post.

Step 4: In order to create a verified MyGovID account, sign in to your basic MyGovID account and follow the steps on-screen.

To verify your MyGovID account, you will need the following:

  1. Your Personal Public Service (PPS) number
  2. Your Public Services Card
  3. Your mobile phone

If your mobile phone number is already verified*, a secure Personal Identification Number (PIN) will be sent to your phone as part of this process. Otherwise, you can have your PIN sent to you by post.

*If your phone number is not verified and you already have a Public Service Card you can visit your local Intreo Centre to verify your phone number.

Postal Applications: If you would like to apply by post, please contact the Parent Support Centre on 01 906 8530, Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.

After you have received your award, you need to provide us with the Child Identifier Code Key (CHICK) that you receive, along with your child’s Date of Birth. Your CHICK can be found under the ‘My Awards’ section of the applicant portal.
