14.12.20 UPDATE Completion of 2019 Re-registration (Source

The re-registration of most early years preschool services took place in the latter part of 2019. In an effort to assist providers at that time, the process was divided into two parts. The first part was completed at the end of last year and the deadline for the second part (submission of remaining documents) postponed until June 0f this year. Given the unprecedented situation with COVID–19 a decision was taken in March of this year to further defer the deadline until a date in 2021.

We now wish to advise you that the final deadline for submission of all remaining documentation for the completion of the re-registration process is close of business on Monday 1st November 2021. This is the final deadline and we would ask you to ensure that you have the required documentation in order and submitted well in advance of this deadline to allow time for any corrections or changes.

05.05.20 UPDATE Completion of 2019 re-registration (Source

Given the unprecedented situation with COVID-19, a decision was made in March to defer the deadline for completion of 2019 re-registration until 2021.

Although the deadline has been moved to a later date, we have received a number of requests from providers who would like to complete the re-registration process while services are closed. To facilitate this, all providers will receive an email from the Tusla portal by Friday 8th May 2020, letting you know that the portal is open and advising you what documents remain outstanding for your application to be completed.  It will also include guidance in relation to accessing the application on the portal and will provide you with contact details of the person available to assist you with any queries you may have. Please note that you are not required to submit the outstanding documents and complete the re-registration process at this time; however, you may wish to take the opportunity to progress or finalise the process while your service is temporarily closed.

If you do wish to submit the outstanding documents and complete the re-registration process, our Early Years and ICT teams are fully available and looking forward to assist you to do so.  Your re-registration will be reviewed when submitted and you will have a dedicated member of the team assigned to assist you.

If you do not wish to do so at this time we will work with you at a later date when the 2021 deadline has been confirmed.

If you do not receive an email in relation to the details for the completion of the re-registration process by Friday 8th May 2020 or if you have any queries please contact us by email at  or by Telephone at 061 461715.
