Dear Colleague

I wish to thank you most sincerely for your support during 2020, for everyone who subscribed to MOSAIC, purchased policies or online CPD or booked mentoring visits – thank you. Your support was essential in what was a difficult year for all small businesses. I hope we can get back to some kind of normality next year and I look forward to meeting some of our MOSAIC services in 2021.

Please find details below of all Meantóir policy packs. You can order in the usual way through our website over the Christmas period. Orders will be date stamped and processed straight after Christmas by date of order.

Anyone thinking of signing up to MOSAIC for January 2021, just drop us an email and we will send information or a link to the purchase platform or book a consultation chat for early January.

Wishing you and your family a healthy, safe and relaxing Christmas break.

Kindest regards

Policy Packs from Meantóir

1. Essential Visitor Protocol

A number of early childhood services have found themselves in the position where an outside professional is required to make an essential visit to the setting in relation to the health, welfare and development of a child (or inspection purposes).
In this event, they have been asked to forward a specific written protocol for visitors in advance of the visit outlining COVID-19 protocol.
In response to this, we have developed an ‘Essential Visitor Protocol’. This document includes:
The protocol for visitors before, during and after the visit

  • A visitor information record template for completion by the visitor before entering the setting
  • A wellness self-declaration by the visitor
  • A Covid-19 Contract tracing template should this be needed following a visit by an essential visitor.

The Essential Visitor Protocol document is personalised to your early childhood service details and is emailed to you in pdf. This in turn can be emailed to any potential essential visitors in advance. The contact tracing template is provided in editable word version so you can complete for multiple children/staff should this be necessary.
