    Parents Notice – School Age Childcare

    Childcare services for school-age children must now register with Tusla, the Child and Family Agency. School-age childcare services have not, to date, been subject to registration, so this is a significant step forward in ensuring quality school-age childcare.

    Services must register their service if their primary purpose is to care for children where their parents are unavailable.
