Childminders are self-employed people who look after other people’s children in the child minder’s own home. A Tusla registered childminder is a person who has informed the local Tusla office of his/her work. Childminders who look after more than 3 pre-school children with the exception of those who mind multiple birth children or siblings are required by law to register with Tusla.
All Childminders are not required to register with Tusla.
Longford County Childcare Committee makes no judgement as to the quality of care provided within the Childminding services listed and acts merely as a support and information point.
