School Aged Childcare

Parents Notice – School Age Childcare

 

Childcare services for school-age children must now register with Tusla, the Child and Family Agency. School-age childcare services have not previously been subject to registration or regulation, so this is a significant step forward in ensuring quality school-age childcare.

 

School-age services must register their service if their primary purpose is to care for children where their parents are unavailable.

All services that currently provide childcare for school-age children must have applied for registration and are urged to start this process straightaway if they have not yet done so. New services must apply for registration at least 3 months before opening.

School-Age Childcare services that are registered with Tusla will be eligible to apply to participate in the forthcoming National Childcare Scheme.

See our guide to choosing school aged childcare.

What is the National Childcare Scheme?

The National Childcare Scheme is a pathway to truly accessible, affordable, quality childcare. From October 2019 it will replace all previous targeted childcare programmes with a single, streamlined and user-friendly Scheme to help parents meet the cost of quality childcare.

Supports are available for families with children aged between 24 weeks and 15 years who are attending any participating Tusla-registered childcare service, including any Tusla-registered childminder.
