Connect Childcare is delighted to announce the launch of our latest guide — Preparing for Ofsted

The often ‘dreaded’ phone call from Ofsted to arrange its next visit can result in an instant cause of panic and stress among nursery providers. And, while it’s the outcome of the ‘inadequate’ to ‘outstanding’ ratings that should be of the utmost importance, it’s no surprise that senior leadership teams experience varying levels of anxiety when it comes to the day of inspection.

In collaboration with Julia Maynard, Childcare Director at Happy Orkids, this guide uncovers how the Ofsted methodology is used during an inspection — including how it relates to the early years foundation stage (EYFS) — as well as the contents of the corresponding handbook and documentation requirements of the nursery provider.
