Suspension of joint inspections of non-maintained childcare settings

13-11-2020

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 March 2021.

A review of the situation will be carried out again in the spring 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.
