Are you happy that Govt money continues to go into the #hydeandseek creche? Min @KZapponeTD: “No Govt money goes into unregistered services.” But the Hyde and Seek #creche was not properly registered for 14 months. “@Tusla has the power to de-register services” #RTEInvestigates

Further to last night’s RTÉ Investigates which revealed a pattern of disturbing behaviour and practices at Hyde and Seek crèches, including fire-safety breaches and rough handling of children….
Ms Zappone told RTÉ radio’s Morning Ireland that she had been deeply upset by the revelations and she urged parents to “listen to their gut” if they were concerned about their child’s care.
She was particularly concerned that despite regulations and improvements that “this appalling behaviour is happening.”
However, when asked if she would be seeking the closure of the Hyde & Seek chain, she said that as Minister she did not want to say anything that would “inhibit the process.”
