Yes, Kerry County Childcare Committee may be able to assist you in sourcing a childminder. There are many people in Kerry minding children in their own homes. Those childminders who are registered with Tusla or voluntary notified to Kerry County Childcare Committee have the option of being included on a list that is made available to parents.
Please note this is not an exhaustive list of childminders in Kerry. There are many childminders operating who are neither Tusla registered or Kerry CCC voluntary notified. The childcare regulations stipulate that childminders caring for 4 or more children are required to register with Tusla. Childminders caring for 3 children or less are not required to register with Tusla but can choose to voluntary notify Kerry CCC.
Parents can access this database and can also avail of the booklet “Choosing a Childminder – A Guide for Parents by contacting our office on 066 7181582 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
