Parent Feedback Form:


A parent feedback process has been developed to enable parents to share their feedback on
the service their child attends. The feedback will be shared with providers and any significant concerns will be managed in the normal way. Tusla have renamed the Unsolicited Information Office to the more user-friendly Feedback and Concerns Office.

New Poster on Inspections

When an inspection takes place, a poster will be displayed in services inviting parents to express their level of satisfaction with the service. Although public health advice dictates that this would not be appropriate at this time due to Covid, Tusla will be doing this at a later stage, when it is safe to do so.

Tusla Q & A Document Updated - July 2021

The Early Years Inspectorate Q&A document has been updated to reflect changes in policy and practice and to ensure it is aligned with the Quality & Regulatory Framework  

The key purpose of both the Q&A and the QRF is to support understanding of the principles and requirements of the Child Care Act 1991 (Early years services) Regulations (2016), the Child Care Act 1991 (Early years services) (Amendment) Regulations (2016) and the Child Care Act 1991, Section 58 as amended by Part 12 of the Child and Family Agency Act, 2013. 

The Q&A document will continue to be updated periodically when questions and clarification requests are received from the sector or when there is a change or an addition to an answer.  The questions received will be collated, and the sector will be informed when an updated version has been published on the website.
