Extension of childcare regulations

From 1 April 2016 the age range for registration of childcare and play in Wales will be extended from 8 to 12 years.

All childcare and play provision, including (child minders, day care services, after school clubs, holiday play schemes and play provision) for children under 12 years old, operating for more than 2 hours a day, will be regulated and inspected by CSSIW.

The changes bring the systems for registration in Wales in line with other parts of the UK, and align with the new Tax Free Childcare scheme to be introduced in 2017.

Visit the CSSIW website for details.
