Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

Early Years (Pre School) Inspectorate

Welcome to Tusla’s Early Years Inspectorate.

Tusla is responsible for inspecting pre-schools, play groups, day nursery, crèches, day-care and similar services which cater for children aged 0-6 years.  

If you are a parent who uses or wants to use an early years’ service for your child, you will find lots of information here to help you make your decision including the register of early years’ services, most recent inspection reports, and information and tips on what to look for when choosing a service. You will also find information on who to contact if you have a complaint or concern about an early years’ service, and information about Tusla’s role as regulator, as well as general news and updates.

If you are an early years’ service provider, or would like to register as one, you will find helpful information, templates and forms that will assist you, as well as news and updates.
