End of Temporary 2-hour Attendance Rule for NCS

Dear Service Provider,

Last year the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth introduced added flexibility on attendance rules under the National Childcare Scheme  response to the exceptional environment caused by COVID-19. The temporary rule change allowed for 2 hour variance in attendance against registration per week without triggering a report.


Please be aware that this 2-hour variance rule will no longer be in affect from Monday, 2 August 2021.
You can find links to Attendance Trackers to support your attendance-keeping for the NCS on the Attendance Rules page of the Early Years Hive.

The updated versions of these trackers will be available for use on the morning of 2 August 2021. This page also contains the rules around child absence and under-attendance.

Regards,
Pobal Early Years Team
