Tusla Children First E-Learning Programme

Tusla has worked with the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and the HSE to develop a universal e-learning programme called ‘Introduction to Children First’.

The programme has been written to support people of all backgrounds and experience in recognising concerns about children and reporting such concerns if they arise.

The programme is based on Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children and the Children First Act 2015.

To adhere to best practice in relation to Child Protection & Welfare, all childminders should complete the E-learning programme.  The programme takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete and can be done at once or in a number of sittings.

Cork City & Cork County Childcare Committees are hosting a series of online Childminding Business Information Sessions for existing or potential childminders.  We will be delivering the sessions at 10am in the morning and at 7pm in the evening over four weeks commencing in September.  The four sessions are as follows:

Session 1:  Marketing your Childminding Business (20th September)

Session 2:  Setting your Fees (27th September)

Session 3:  Developing a Childminder & Parent Contract (4th October)

Session 4:  Childminding & Revenue (11th October)

You are welcome to attend all four sessions or individual sessions depending on your information and support needs. Each information session is approximately one hour, however Session 4 is approximately 1.5 hours.
