The newly established School Age Childcare Team in Tusla is responsible for promoting the quality, safety and appropriate care of the children by assisting in the registration of services within the sector.

The School Age Childcare Team has developed a FAQ document which is available to download from the Tusla website, along with further useful information to assist with preparing to register a School Age Service. https://www.tusla.ie/services/family community-support/school-age-services/prepare-to-register-your-school-age-setting-on-line/ School-Age Childcare services that are registered will also be eligible to apply to participate in the forthcoming National Childcare Scheme.

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.
