Public Consultation on the Draft Childminding Action Plan

Former Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD, launched the Draft Childminding Action Plan on August 30th 2019, for the purpose of public consultation. The Draft Action Plan sets out proposals for improving access to high quality and affordable early learning and care and school-age childcare through childminding.

As well as publishing the Draft Action Plan, the Minister also launched a public consultation process on the proposals. She invited childminders, parents, other stakeholders and anyone interested in childminding to share their views. A call for submissions and online survey was available until October 10th 2019, and a number of focus groups of childminders took place. To view action plan, please click on item below.
