Garda Vetting


Under the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016 all staff, students, and volunteers who have access to children should be Garda Vetted.


How can I get Garda vetting as a childminder?

Garda Vetting is best practice for all childminders. However it is a legal requirement for a Statutory Notified Childminder. Those not required to do so can voluntarily opt to be Garda vetted.

Contact Barnardos Vetting Service in Cork and ask for the childminders info pack.
