Childcare Partnerships play a key role in the development of high quality services for children aged 0-14 years

A training resource has been published for ALL registered childcare settings and providers

Childcare Partnerships have developed an Infection Prevention and Control Training Resource for Childcare Settings (PDF).

This resource covers childcare providers registered with the local Health and Social Care Trust including Daycare Nurseries, Preschool, Afterschool, Crèche, Childminding Services and those individuals working as an Approved Home Childcarer during the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak period.

Please ensure you and your staff are familiar with this training resource to help prevent and control the spread of covid-19.


Due to ongoing developments in relation to COVID-19, it has become necessary to temporarily postpone all face to face training sessions. Face to face training options are being kept under review and will be reinstated at some point in the future dependent on easing of lockdown restrictions.


To support childcare providers in re-opening, the Childcare Partnerships have developed a sample COVID-19 Risk Assessment Template and some prompts to help address the risks associated with and related to coronavirus.

Sample COVID-19 Risk Assessment Template with prompts

We now have a wide range of online training courses available and are continually adding to this, please check the Childcare Partnership website regularly for updates.
