Do you operate a childcare service for school-age children?

School-age childcare services must now register with Tusla, the Child and Family Agency. If your service provides childcare for school-age children only, you have until 18th May 2019 to apply for registration. If your school-age service is already registered with Tusla as a pre-school service, you have until 18th August 2019 to apply for registration. New services must apply for registration at least 3 months before opening.
