To Compliance & Beyond

Posted by Administrator on June 1, 2018

Dublin City Childcare Committee have produced a new booklet titled To Compliance and Beyond, A Guide for Early Years Services.  The following is taken directly from the introduction section of the booklet.

“This booklet has been written as a guide for Early Years Practitioners to provide information that can support you in achieving compliance with general practice, health and safety and employment legislation.  This guide also highlights additional paperwork that should be kept to ensure best practice and to provide clear information to staff, parents and those who may be inspecting your service.  Comprehensive knowledge and familiarity of regulation, legislation and compliance requirements is crucial in order to have ethical, safe, productive and professional work practices in early childhood settings (CECDE, 2006).

This booklet is intended only to support Early Years Practitioners and is a reference guide to assist in core compliance.  It is not intended as a definitive guide to practice management and is to be implemented only in conjunction with best practice and good governance of management and staff.  The content, while thorough, does not exhaust all of the duties inherent in the management of an Early Years Service” (DCCC, 2018).

The booklet is FREE and is a fantastic resource which will hopefully be available via all of the Childcare Committees. If you’re a manager; owner; practitioner; student; lecturer or indeed someone involved with young children, this booklet will be invaluable. If you are in the Dublin City Childcare Committee catchment area and you would like a copy of the booklet send an email to
