Garda Vetting

Under the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016 all staff, students, and volunteers who have access to children should be Garda Vetted.

How can I get Garda vetting as a childminder? Garda Vetting is best practice for all childminders. Those not required to do so can voluntarily opt to be Garda vetted. Contact Barnardos Vetting Service in Cork and ask for the childminders info pack.

Fill out the form and return it to Barnardos. You should include all adult family members and your emergency contacts.

It may take up to 8 to 10 weeks to receive the results of your vetting.
