As you are more then likely aware from media reports over the last number of days there are major issues within the Early Years sector and Insurance cover for 2020. While rumours & speculation have been made over the last few days with regards to services having to close due to lack of cover in January we are pleased to confirm that we have been notified this evening by our insurers that both Tots & Co branches at Beaumont, Dublin 9 & Barrow Street, Dublin 4 have cover for 2020 and will operate as normal. However, while we are pleased to confirm cover for the coming year it is with regret that this cover at both branches comes at a significant increase in cost which as a provider we cannot bear and will have to review our fees in the new year.
As we come into a general election year we are asking parents to question your local representatives & potential new TDs when and if they will take the early years sector & pre school services seriously and invest in what is the future of our country. While we are lucky to remain open other services nationwide are being forced to shut down due to increasing costs and a lack of investment by the government & minister Zappone.
