Darllenwch hyn yn Gymraeg yma

Welsh Government have published the report on the National Minimum Standards for regulated childcare (NMS). 

The review was undertaken by Welsh Government officials between 2017-19. It involved analysis of the relationship between The Child Minding and Day Care (Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2016 and the NMS, engagement with stakeholders across the childcare and play sector and examination of the approaches adopted by other UK administrations to assessing the standard of childcare and play provision. The review also considered the relationship between CIW’s Inspection Framework and the quality schemes operated by individual local authorities and the childcare and play organisations.

A number of key issues have emerged from the review:

  • Safeguarding
  • Inspection/CIW
  • Supernumerary staffing ratio
  • Qualifications
  • First Aid
  • Childminder Assistants and Childminders working together
  • Open Access Play
  • Quality
  • Foundation Phase
  • Overall format/structure of NMS

The review has suggested twenty recommendations.  Whilst some of the key findings and recommendations in this report can be taken forward relatively speedily others have more wide ranging cross cutting policy implications and need to be seen as part of a bigger picture.  More broadly, the review has exposed wide ranging issues across the childcare and play sector and has raised expectations that these will be considered and responded to by Welsh Government.
