Ofsted early years videos

Ofsted has uploaded four short films about the early years.

  1. What happens on an early years inspection?
  2. What happens if someone complains about me?
  3. How do I register as an early years provider?
  4. What do I need to tell you?

In the first video, Wendy Ratcliff HMI talks about common myths on what inspectors want to see in early years settings. Martin Williams, principal officer, operations and Penny Fisher, early years senior HMI, offer an insight into what happens when a parent expresses concern about the care provided by a setting.

Gill Jones, deputy director, early education and Emma Exton, deputy director, operations discuss each stage of the Ofsted registration process, from initial DBS checks to final inspection. In the last video Dee Coleman, principal officer, early years and Julie-Ann Morris, senior manager, early years explain what registered early years providers need to tell Ofsted about.
