Publication of the CIW and Estyn guidance handbook for inspecting care and education
From early 2019 we will be jointly inspecting 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 12 and the education of 3 and 4 year olds that do not receive education in a maintained setting.
The new guidance handbook, which we have published today, will give further guidance about the way Estyn and ourselves inspect these services. It will also help providers understand our inspection process.
More information about this work is on our Joint child care and play framework page.
