First 5 – Information for Parents [Updated December 14th 2021]

Guidance during COVID-19

Information for Parents [Updated December 14th 2021]

This section provides helpful information and guidance for parents on children in settings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As Early Learning and Care (ELC) and School-Age Childcare (SAC) services operate during COVID-19, it is important for babies, toddlers and young children that child-centredness continues to be a basis for how we develop our response for children. When all the child’s most important adults—parents and practitioners—work together, going to childcare can be a positive experience for everyone.

Everyone will need to remain vigilant and continue to follow Public Health guidance.
