As part of our 3 year National Lottery Community Fund People and Places Project, our Childcare Business Development Officers are able to support new and existing Out of School Childcare Providers through the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) registration process. We have updated you this month about online registration going ‘Live’ and encourage all Unregistered Providers to consider going through the Registration Process, which has multiple benefits for parents/carers and for your Club.
CIW processes being online has several benefits for providers. With CIW Online, data is secure, and it facilitates secure communication between Providers and CIW. Online processes (such as registration) also means that information appears dynamically and is individualised. Whereas with the paper form for registration, it had to include questions relating to all Provider types, with online registration Providers only see the information relevant to them and their legal and management structure. This makes it a far more streamlined process. CIW has also taken into careful consideration what information is required by the Regulations, and what information is not, and so it is just the pertinent questions that are asked within the new online form.
In light of this new user friendly process, we urge all Unregistered Providers to look into registration, and we are more than happy to support you through this.
