Play and childcare providers – SASS part two


Registered childcare and play providers in Wales are required to complete an annual Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) online Self Assessment of Service Statement (SASS).
In late spring 2017, all childcare and play providers providing for children up to the age of 12 in Wales will be required to complete part two of their 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.

CSSIW has developed guidance for this part and a Quality of Care Review template for play and childcare providers.  
More information about preparing for SASS Part 2 and Quality of Care Review guidance
If you didn't complete part one of the SASS during the summer of 2016, then you will be required to complete parts one and two via CSSIW online. 
CSSIW will be writing to providers around the end of May with details of what you need to do to complete your SASS.
