Shared inspection framework for ELC services including childminding and school-aged childcare

Join us for an engagement event to help shape the new framework.

The Care Inspectorate and Education Scotland are working together to progress the development of the shared inspection framework for early learning and childcare (ELC) services, including childminding and school-aged childcare in Scotland.

The new framework will replace Education Scotland’s ‘How good is our early learning and childcare’ and the Care Inspectorate’s ‘Quality framework for daycare of children, childminding and school aged childcare’.

As part of the first phase of our consultation on the new framework, we would like to invite you to attend one of our engagement events taking place in May either in-person or online.
