The HSE Pre-school Inspenction Officer for Co. Wicklow, Catherine Fenton is retiring from the HSE this August.
Catherine has been an excellent servant to the early years sector over many years and has worked closely with providers and Wicklow County Childcare Committee during this time to identify issues of concern and importantly suggestions for improvement. On behalf of the staff and Board of WCCC, I would like to wish Catherine all the best in her future ventures and thank her for all her hard work in Co. Wicklow.
The HSE is in the process of recruiting a successor to Catherine and are also reviewing the inspection process more widely. We will keep you updated on both fronts when we receive information.
In the meantime, if you have any need to contact the HSE regarding inspection issues, please contact Ingrid Byrne who will also be picking up emails sent to Catherine’s email address and of course the staff here at WCCC are always here to help if you need some advice or support.
I hope that you are all enjoying the summer and that preparations for September are going well.
