Children and Families Bill

The Department for Education has released further information on the amendments to be made to the Childcare Act 2006. This inlcudes to provide for the registration for childminder agencies and for the registration of childminders to these agencies. This can be found at: http://www.education.gov.uk/aboutdfe/departmentalinformation/childrenandfamiliesbill/a00221161/children-families-bill.

PACEY will be reviewing the Statement of Policy Intention today and early next week, and will then update members on our next steps forward.

Please be assured that there are a number of actions planned in order to continue the Individual Inspection Matters Campaign. This will ensure that all childminders, organisations and local authorities are aware of the dangers the agency model presents to the quality of childcare and the childminding profession. Watch this space for further updates.
