Childminders Support Pack

Childminder’s Support Pack

Dublin City Childcare Committee in collaboration with Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, Fingal, and South Dublin County Childcare Committees has developed a Childminder Support Pack for Voluntary Notification process.

The Childminder Support Pack contains samples of Childminding Policies and Procedures, Record Keeping Forms, and National Guidelines for Childminders (revised edition: August 2008). All of the forms are presented in a hard copy and CD format.
