The National Action Plan for Childminding is a pathway to be developed over the next 8 years that sets out steps towards regulation, support and subsidies, for all paid, non-relative childminders. The Action Plan will involve change and significant benefits for childminders, children and families using their services.
The aim of the Action Plan is to provide greater recognition for childminding and to support childminders in their work of providing high quality early learning and care and school age childcare, thus supporting child development, and learning outcomes and helping families.

There have been a number of support resources developed by the DCEDIY through the National Childminding Team (using material that has been adapted from resources previously developed & published by City/county Childcare Committees & Tusla). The resources contain the most up to date information relevant to the childminding sector (Jan. 2022).
