Due to significant changes in government guidelines and information around COVID-19, a full review of the COVID-19 Rescue Pack has been completed by Canavan Byrne. The new Rescue Pack has been completely updated and reorganised.

This newly updated pack provides you with all the paperwork required in line with the most recent government guidelines. The Policy and Response Plan and other documentation has been re-organised and rewritten. This is based on the latest information and advice available as well as feedback from early years services. This includes the latest guidelines around international travel, vaccinations, quarantine and the new Delta variant.

The pack includes all the paperwork you will need for staff, contractors, the children, parents and families. It includes forms and checklists, staff induction PowerPoint presentation, parent’s leaflet, and official Tusla forms. In addition, it includes a number of printable posters to hang around your service as gentle reminders to staff around hygiene, social distancing and congregation. Below is a full list of all documents that are included in the pack.
