Barnardos have developed, in collaboration with Tusla, a guidebook, policy samples/templates and other documents to support you, as an early years provider, to develop your own set of policies, procedures and statements to meet the requirements of the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016.

You can access all these resources via the Tusla website.


As an early years’ service, you are required to have a Child Safeguarding statement. Click here for a sample child safeguarding template
