This week Ofsted has published a set of guides for parents explaining early years and childcare inspections. This follows feedback from Ofsted's parents forum that more information around inspections would be useful for parents or carers of children who attend childminders, nurseries and other types of provision.
The guides include information on why Ofsted inspects different types of setting, what happens on an inspection and the judgements that Ofsted makes following an inspection.
PACEY worked with Ofsted in shaping the parent guides, which you can find on Ofsted's website:
PACEY members may wish to share these resources with the parents and carers of the children in your setting.
