643. To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs further to Parliamentary Question No. 704 of 24 June 2014, if he will provide in full tabular breakdown by date, area and reason for the closure of 165 early child care providers that have closed since 2009. [28386/14]

As stated in my response to the previous Parliamentary Question the information requested by the Deputy is not routinely collected by my Department.

I am including a table below based on the information collected by Pobal showing the reasons, where provided, for the closures of the 165 child care facilities. I wish to point out again that this data does not relate to all child care providers in the country but only to those services that engaged with Pobal in relation to the Childcare Capital Programmes and the Community Childcare Subvention Programme.
