Requirements, qualifications and training for registered childcare providers

Statutory Requirements for registered settings

After registration has been granted, the registered person and staff within that setting must continue to meet standards to ensure compliance with the Day Care of Children (Jersey) Law, 2002.

The Early Years Statutory Requirements are for settings caring for children from birth to school entry age. The Childhood Statutory Requirements  are for settings caring for children from three to 12 years of age.

Supporting Quality Development

The recent introduction of quality frameworks to the registered childcare and early years sector will promote a common understanding of how high quality practice will support an on-going cycle of continuous improvement.

Both Early Years Matters and Childhood Matters quality frameworks will support providers to self-assess the quality of the service and evaluate their strengths and areas for development.

The Childcare and Early Years Service (CEYS) have in addition, produced a non-statutory self-evaluation template and supporting guidance notes to assist providers with the self-evaluation process.

The effectiveness of self-evaluation and the strengths of leadership and management will be scrutinised and validated during the regulatory review of a setting’s quality and compliance.

Requirements of registration for registered childminders

The requirements of registration for childminders are standards that you must meet when setting up a registered childcare provision in your own home. You must continue to meet these standards while you are registered and providing childcare to ensure compliance with the Day Care of Children (Jersey) Law, 2002.
