Ofsted have launched a consultation document on proposals for revisions to the inspection of early years providers.
They are seeking the widest possible range of views from those who have an interest in, or expertise relating to early years provision, in order to ensure that the changes proposed take proper account of the needs and circumstances of all interested parties.
Above all, the revisions to the inspection framework must assure the quality of services for all children in registered early years provision and promote their continuing improvement.

The closing date for the consultation is 24 May 2013.
