Our Approach

Early learning and care services are operating in an increasingly professionalised sector. There are many responsibilities, legal requirements and challenges to plan and be prepare for.

A range of Policies, Procedures and Statements are required for each early learning and care service under Regulation 10 of the Early Years Regulations 2016 are set out in Schedule 5 of the Regulations.

As a key part of quality standards and day to day processes, it is essential that policies, procedures and statements are used to guide the early childhood service and staff as well as the families who use the service.

MOSAIC policy and procedures packs are known for their comprehensive yet practical layout and adherence to Tusla requirements. A range of supporting templates accompany each policy where necessary.

Each package option is available in electronic PDF format and is personalised with your name, logo and some key positional information which we will ask you to provide following your order.

A ‘Statement of Purpose’ document accompanies the policy pack which is fully editable ‘Word’ format so that you can make necessary changes to your details as they arise. Fully editable templates and record sheets are also provided as appropriate (see package options for a full list of contents).

Each package provides detailed policies, procedures and statements that will become your ‘go to’ guide on different areas of your practice with children. Each policy is linked to the relevant underpinning legislation, outlines clear processes for good practice and provides staff guidance where necessary.
