Early Years and Childcare Statistics

Ofsted has just published its latest statistics on inspections for registered early years and childcare providers. It's a little tricky to navigate your way through the various datasets, but a couple of the key findings are:

  • 80% of providers were rated as good or outstanding, an increase of 1% on the last set of statistics
  • 83% of childcare providers on non-domestic premises were rated as good or outstanding
  • 78% of childminders were rated as good or outstanding
On a local note, of the almost 6000 settings inspected in the West Midlands, 13% were rated outstanding, 68% were rated good, 17% were judged to 'require improvement', and 2% were rated as inadequate.

The latest statistics are available to download from this link.
