Care Inspectorate: A quality framework for daycare of children, childminding and school-aged childcare
This week the Care Inspectorate published their new quality framework for the daycare of children, childminding and school-aged childcare.
The primary purpose of the framework is for early learning and childcare (ELC) services to evaluate their own performance. It will also be used by Care Inspectors to provide independent assurance about the quality of children’s experiences and outcomes.
The framework will be tested in some services between June and September 2021 and Care Inspectorate will notify the sector before they fully implement the framework in their full inspection programme.
