Childcare providers have confirmed they will stage a national protest on February 5th.

The demonstration, which will be held in Dublin, is being carried out to highlight what organisers say is a pay crisis in the sector.

Educators and providers say they are faced with ongoing difficulties due to the cost of insurance.

Thousands of educators, providers and parents are set to take part.

They're calling for a sustainable solution to the worsening childcare crisis.

Federation of Early Childhood Providers Chairperson, Elaine Dunne, said: “We are calling on all those concerned by the worsening childcare crisis to join us on Wednesday 5th February to say enough is enough. We are educators and need to be paid accordingly."
