DCCC's "To Compliance and Beyond" A Guide for Early Years Services is now Available!

Dublin City Childcare Committee’s new publication ‘To Compliance and Beyond’ is a guide for Early Years services to support their journey towards compliance and the continued provision of quality early years care and education. This publication was created in response to recent changes in the compliance process for Early Years providers which resulted in a higher level of support being provided by DCCC to providers to maintain compliance under the various inspections. The information and advice provided in this book has been compiled by taking into consideration common compliance issues our providers have experienced, the most effective ways we found to support the provider through these common issues and frequently asked questions we have received.

The images in this book were taken in Mellows Spring Childcare Development Centre Finglas West, and are a beautiful representation of quality Early Years Education and Care in the Dublin area.

This book serves as a guide and is not an exhaustive list of resources, but is a helpful starting point for an Early Years provider/educator in understanding the foundational aspects of each inspection agency and we have received positive feedback so far. We hope that you find this useful, and we would love to hear your feedback. Feedback can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
