Please be advised that all Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare Services, with the exception of ECCE only services, are expected to be open for parents who are essential workers and vulnerable children on Monday, 11 January 2021 unless they have received formal instruction to close.

Formal instruction includes any one of the following:
•    HSE/Tusla order to close on public health grounds
•    Force majeure approved by DCEDIY

DCEDIY and the Minister appreciate the hugely important role played by your sector in supporting essential workers and vulnerable families at this time and thank you for it.

More detailed information on the resumption of Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare including guidance on the definition of vulnerable children and essential workers will issue on 8 January.
