Joint CIW and Estyn guidance published
This month we begin jointly inspecting some childcare services that provide both care and early education
This joint guidance, published today, covers inspections of care and education in regulated non-school settings, which are eligible for funding for part-time education.
During the joint inspections, we will inspect the care of all children up to the age of 12 and the education of three and four-year-olds that do not receive education in a maintained setting.
The guidance will give further details about the way Estyn and ourselves jointly inspect these services.
It will also help providers understand our inspection process, and contains a copy of our inspection framework.
In addition, we have published a factual accuracy document and follow-up document for the joint inspections.
