When you have visited some services, you may feel you are in a better position to choose the right one for your child and family.
This section provides helpful information and guidance for parents with children in settings during the COVID-19 pandemic. https://first5.gov.ie/guidance
The Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) have launched the Let’s Get Ready website to support parents and early year’s providers for the reopening of the Early Learning and Care sector, following the closure of services in March 20 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Let’s Get Ready website includes lots of useful advice on preparing for the transition back into the service with lots of helpful resources.
Additional resources to support parents are available on this website including DCYA’s FAQ for Parents on the Reopening of the sector and Barnardos publication Supporting your child’s emotional well-being on their return to Early Leaning and Care.
