The Self-Assessment of Service Statement (SASS) 2021 is now live
It is a legal requirement for all childminders and childcare and play providers to complete a SASS.
We have written to providers to let them know that the SASS is now live (7 July 2021).
The SASS is an online form Registered Persons and Responsible Individuals are required to complete under the Child Minding and Day Care (Wales) Regulations 2010, in relation to monitoring compliance of a service.
The SASS provides vital information that we use to plan our inspections, and helps us advise Welsh Government about the state of the childcare and play sector in Wales.
We no longer produce a paper copy of the SASS form, so childcare and play providers will need a CIW Online account (link) in order to complete the SASS.
If you already have a CIW Online account (External link) you can log on, complete and submit your SASS from today, 7 July 2021.
If you have not yet set up a CIW Online account you need to take urgent action.

Please complete and submit your SASS by 4 August 2021.
