Suspension of joint inspections of non-maintained childcare settings continues

22-02-2021

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 August 2021.

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