Early Years Providers
The information in this section is designed to support Registered Providers of Early Years Services, people who work in Early Years Services in any capacity and people who are involved in boards of management and committees.
You will find a wide range of information and resources including sections on Change in Circumstances applications, notifiable incidents and Feedback and Concerns.
This section also includes the register of Early Years services and access to all published inspection reports. The Early Years Provider resources pages provide access to the inspectorate’s Quality & Regulatory Framework (QRF), the QRF eLearning programme, the inspectorate’s Questions and Answer document, a series of webinars and various other guidance documents and publications.
The Department of Education also undertakes inspections of early years services in Ireland. These inspections are focused on the quality of the nature, range and appropriateness of the early educational experiences for children. You can find out more about these inspections on the Department of Education Early years Education Inspections website.
