Calling all childcare and play providers - your Self Assessment of Service Statement (SASS) window is now open

We have written 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 that need it most. The data from across Wales will be collated and 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 that registered with us before 31 December 2023, 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
  • or call us on 0300 7900 126 and select option 4

Completing your SASS is quick and easy via your CIW Online account. If you need some help and support, we’ve put together some useful resources, including ‘how to’ videos and guidance on our website.
