Sinn Féin’s children and young people spokesperson, Catherine Kelly MLA has urged groups who provide early years education and learning provisions to apply for the Pathway Fund 2020/’21.
Catherine Kelly MLA said:
“The Pathway Fund in 2020/21 is now open for applications and will be subject to the availability of Department of Education (DE) funding.
“It will be open to all facilitators or registered providers of early years education and learning provision focused on children 0-4.
“The Pathway Fund aims to improve the development of children who are at risk of not reaching their full potential in the school system and helps organisations provide first-class services to children who need them.
“In 2020/21 the Pathway Fund will be administered over two streams and applicants can apply to one or the other, not both and only one application per organisation will be accepted.”
