Majority Want Private Childminders To Be Garda Vetted

Written 2 months ago by Mary Kate Findon


New research shows almost nine in 10 believe private childminders should be Garda vetted.

The study from Early Childhood Ireland says 65% also wanted childcare costs to be more in line with income levels.

A childcare manager in Edenderry believes meaningful investment from the Government would be needed to make this a reality.

Angela Walsh says Garda vetting shouldn’t be a threat to anyone who has been trusted to look after someone’s child.
