Working jointly to inspect the care and education of children
From early 2019 we will be working with Estyn to jointly inspect settings that provide both care and early education.
During these joint inspections we will inspect the care of all children up to the age of twelve and the education of 3 and 4 year olds that do not receive education in a maintained setting.
The new framework will make it easier in the way we and Estyn and ourselves inspect these services. It will also help providers as part of the inspection process. More information about this work is on our Joint child care and play framework page.
