Tusla’s Quality and Regulatory Framework eLearning programme was developed following consultation with the early years sector in relation to the supports identified to support compliance with the Childcare Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016. The Quality and Regulatory Framework eLearning programme is an additional support to the Quality and Regulatory Framework document, which has been circulated to the sector (available on the Tusla website). The programme also supports the Guidelines to Developing Policies and Procedures in Early Childhood Education and Care Settings a Practical Guide (available on the Tusla website).
The aim of this programme is to;
- Assist registered providers and staff of early years services to prepare for a Tusla early years inspection.
- Support early years professionals to meet the requirements of the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016 and the Childcare Act 1991 (Early Years Services) (Amendment) Regulations 2016.
This eLearning programme may be used as a resource by other professionals in the early years sector; it identifies what quality early years provision looks like in practice and as such may also be of interest to parents and guardians.
