National Association of Private Childcare Providers

“An independent voice for the Childcare Provider”

Who We Are

The National Association of Private Childcare Providers (NPCP) was set up primarily to give Private Operators in Ireland an independent voice within a business network environment and to promote Quality Childcare. Our association is run on a voluntary basis by concerned Childcare providers. We have access to no funding and giving of our time freely to protect the interests of the Private Operator.


Our Strategy

Our strategy is to have the NPCP as the largest independent voice for Private Childcare Providers in Ireland with regional bodies throughout Ireland to represent the views of all providers.
