Self Assessment of Service Statement will go live on 31 January

We will soon be writing to all childcare and play providers about their Self Assessment of Service Statement (SASS) 2024.

What is a SASS?

SASS is an online form that Registered Persons and Responsible Individuals are required to complete. This is a legal requirement for all childminders and childcare and play providers.

What do we do with the data?

The information providers give us through their SASS submission helps us to plan our inspections and provide the right help and support to those who need it most. The data from across Wales will be collated, anonymised and published later in 2024. You can view last year’s data here.

Important information for all childcare and play providers:

If you run a childcare and play service, you are required to complete your SASS using CIW Online by 15 March 2024.

If you do not complete your SASS by this date, it will impact your future ratings.

You will need to have a CIW Online account to complete your SASS.

If you do not have a CIW Online account, you need to take urgent action:

  • visit CIW Online (External link)
  • or call us on 0300 7900 126 and select option 4

If you have any questions about completing a SASS, please email us
