Early Years Quality and Regulatory Framework

The Early Years Inspectorate (Tusla) has developed a Quality and Regulatory Framework (QRF), to support registered Early Years Services to comply with the 2016 Regulations. The QRF does this by setting out the core regulatory requirements in a transparent way, bringing together evidence-based, national and international research and best practice in Early Years. The QRF aims to support registered providers in achieving compliance with the regulations and enhance the safety and care of children who attend these services.

There are different QRFs for full day care, sessional and childminding services.  The QRFs can be found on the Tusla website here.
Also on that link, you will find the very useful ‘Developing Policies, Procedures and Statements in Early Childhood Education and Care Services’ and sample policies which you may adapt to your own service’s needs.
