Care Inspectorate Wales and Estyn’s joint inspections statement


In a joint statement, Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) and Estyn have announced the current suspension of joint inspections of non-maintained childcare settings in Wales will continue until 31 December 2020.

A review of the situation will be carried out in the autumn to consider the options for restarting the joint inspection programme in the future. CIW and Estyn will aim to give the childcare sector at least six weeks’ notice before resuming routine joint inspections.
