There are concerns within the sector that provisions operating as childcare may use the exemptions to avoid registration.
Welsh Government’s call for evidence aims to seek views – among other things – on whetherthose providing 2 or less of the types of activity listed below should be exempt from CIW registration (this exception does not apply if children are below the age of 5 and attend for longer than 4 hours per day).
(b) performing arts;
(c) arts and crafts;
(d) school study or homework support;
(e) religious or cultural study
The Call for Evidence will end 20 March 2019, after which a formal consultation will be held if a decision is made to make any amendments to the Order.
