provision - For use by Ofsted inspectors, the evaluation
schedule provides outline guidance and grade descriptors for the

Childminders may find
these documents useful as they detail what inspectors are looking
for when visiting. Members may also find the Preparing For
Your Inspection practice guide useful.
