Play and childcare providers – prepare for SASS part two


Registered Childcare and play providers are required to complete a self assessment and an annual review of the quality of care at their service. This information tells Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) about your service and the system you have for monitoring, reviewing and improving the quality of care given to children and is used to inform the inspection of your service.

In late spring 2017, all childcare and play providers will be required to complete part two of their Self Assessment of Service Statement (SASS). This includes completing a Quality of Care Review. This information helps CSSIW to monitor your compliance with the Child Minding and Day Care (Wales) Regulations 2010.

Guidance is now available to help you prepare for completing part two. CSSIW has developed a Quality of Care Review template for play and childcare providers.
