Joint childcare and play framework

Together with Estyn we have developed a joint inspection framework for childcare and play services.

What we are doing

From January 2019, we have jointly inspected care and education in regulated non-school services eligible for funding for part-time education.

During these joint inspections, we 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.

Joint inspections

Our joint inspections will deliver:

  • One inspection report that covers standards in both childcare and education
  • A revised inspection framework that covers fewer, but broader areas
  • New timescales for the length, frequency and notice period for an inspection

Useful documents

We have published inspection guidance, a factual accuracy document, and follow-up document for the joint inspections.
