If you are a childminder or are considering becoming one we welcome you with open arms. One of the main purposes of Hiredhelp.ie is to provide access to the highest quality childcare in Ireland. The majority of parents in Ireland today seek childcare services for their children, either through agency or individual. As you can imagine, that's a lot of childminding jobs.
The importance of childminding to the Irish economy has led to the government introducing a tax exemption for all childminders who take care of 3 or fewer children and earning no more than E15,000, an ideal source of supplemental family income. So get online today and start your career as a childminder.
