Ofsted announces new early years inspection arrangements

gov,uk logo

Ofsted is to introduce a new, more proportionate and flexible approach to inspecting nurseries and childminders that will prioritise the inspection of providers rated less than good.

When full routine early years inspections resume, all early years providers will be inspected in a 6-year window from the date of their last inspection

Some arrangements will not change: Ofsted will still aim to inspect all new childcare providers within 30 months of registration where possible, childcare providers judged to require improvement will be inspected within a year and inadequate childcare provision will be inspected within 6 months.
