All About Ofsted
Ofsted stands for "the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills". Ofsted inspectors will inspect and regulate any services that provide care for children. Ofsted has two registers which childminders will apply to be on: The Childcare Register and the Early Years Register.
I have had my initial inspection but not my grading inspection yet. My grading inspection will occur within roughly 30 months of my initial inspection. The latest Ofsted information about my Ofsted registration can be found here.
