Ofsted's decision to bring early years inspections in house reflects the vital importance of high quality early years support

01 March 2016

Responding to the news released today by Ofsted that inspections of Early Years providers are to be brought in-house from April 2017, Imelda Redmond CBE, Chief Executive of 4Children said:

"High quality early years care and education can make or break a child’s future prospects.  Those who enter the school system at a disadvantage face a lifetime of playing catch up

“Today’s news that inspections of early years providers will be delivered directly by Ofsted, bringing them into line with schools, should offer welcome reassurance to parents and providers. It will help to ensure consistently high quality inspections across the entire education community and sends a clear message that children’s life chances are influenced long before they start school.”
