Pathway to a quality support and assurance system for childminding – Report of Expert Working Group on reforms and supports for the childminding sector

“Pathway to a Quality Support and Assurance System for Childminding in Ireland” was launched on 26th March 2018 by the Working Group on Reforms and Supports for the Childminding Sector.
At its launch, Minister Katherine Zappone recognised the valuable contribution that childminders make to the childcare sector and stated that childminders must be integral in the development of a new childminding system.
The report provides a clear picture of childminding in Ireland today and makes proposals for a support system for childminders and a regulatory system that is designed to recognise, promote and support good quality childminding.  The report and support documentation can be accessed below:
