Ofsted’s published data on childcare inspection outcomes, for the period from end of September to end of December 2009 show an improvement in results, particuarly for childcarers on domestic premises.

Andrew Fletcher, NCMA Joint Chief Executive said:

"It is very encouraging to see that the number of registered childminders achieving and exceeding inspection standards is improving with 97 per cent making the grade. The numbers receiving ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ ratings remains at a high level: 66 per cent.

"There is also a very good picture emerging among settings classed as Childcare on Domestic Premises, where more than four childminders care for children together. Results show dramatic improvement on the previous quarter, with three quarters of these settings achieving ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ results. This is great news for the home-based childcare sector and demonstrates a commitment to the continuous improvement and provision of high quality childcare.

“It is crucial that all childminders are able to access a dedicated quality improvement network to raise the quality of home-based childcare provision yet further. Evidence suggests that there is strong link between childminders’ participation in a quality improvement scheme and higher levels of ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ outcomes in Ofsted inspection."
