If they split into 2 which area would childminders come under, care or education?
As we do both!!:panic: Not 2 inspections I hope!

That's really interesting, my hubs told me it was on the news this morning.
It says that Ofsted need to work on becoming more 'credible' and that many inspectors do not have relevant experience of working in the childcare fields they are inspecting. I'd go along with that.
My inspection a few weeks ago was farcical [obviously that's just my opinion]
My husband will not let it lie and has told them they are 'not fit for purpose':eek: :laughing:
Strangely, I read many reports yesterday. After being really shocked that my local CC only got 'satisfactory' I read those of all my local minders, schools, nurseries and CC'S. What I read surprised me. Not sure any of them are really a fair representation of what's really going on.
Not that I'm bitter or anything:laughing:
