Nelly Bergman explains:
In Budget 2001, the Minister for Finance allocated €12.7m for the provision of 10-15 crèches for the children of civil servants throughout Ireland.
The allocation was part of a major Initiative by the Government to improve childcare provision and increase the number of childcare places available in Ireland.
The CSCI also aimed to contribute to the equality agenda and increase female participation at higher executive officer level and above and to help employees to combine employment with their family life.
