Important Information for Parents and Guardians in relation to School Age Childcare

Dear Parent, 

Please click on this link below to view a letter we have been asked to share on behalf of Tusla the Child and Family Agency (Tusla).

Tusla letter for Parents/Guardians

The letter advises parents/guardians that on the 18th February 2019, the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) (Registration of School Age Services) Regulations 2018 came into effect and services that provide after school childcare must now register with Tusla. School-age childcare services have not, to date, been subject to registration, so this is a significant step forward in ensuring quality school-age childcare. Childminders may be exempt from registration depending on the numbers of children they are minding.

Childminding Ireland is the National Body for Childminding and are here to support parents using childminding services and if they have any questions or queries please contact us on support@childminding.ie or phone 01 2878 466.
