Pobal Compliance Visits

On behalf of DCEDIY, Pobal is contracted to conduct compliance visits with participating childcare services who operate these childcare funding programmes: 

  • National Childcare Scheme (NCS) 
  • Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) 


Compliance visits involve checks on records held on site and verify:

  • The children who have been registered with DCEDIY under one of the childcare funding programmes are actually enrolled in and attending the service
  • The service is implementing the correct fee payment policy
  • The fee payment policy, parent letters (where applicable) and calendars (where applicable) are displayed in the service and that a copy for each child is on file and signed by a parent/guardian
  • Records are maintained of optional extra charges, deposits, voluntary donation and/or fees for additional hours and in accordance with the fee payment policy of the service
  • The service can show the qualifications of all staff working directly with children
