Self Assessment of Service Statement (SASS)

Support from NDNA Cymru with Self Assessment of Service Statement (SASS) for nurseries

As a childcare and care provider you should have received a letter to let you know that from January 2020 CIW will be going online for childcare and play providers.

You need to create an online account in order to complete the SASS which is a regulatory requirement. The SASS will be available for completion online from 6 January until 11 February 2020. 

CIW logoThere are still over 40% of full day care settings in some local authorities which have not activated their online account. 

You should have received a letter with a unique reference number to your setting inviting you to sign up to your online account with CIW. Even if you previously had an online login for the SASS upload, it must be redone. 

The timescale for creating your account has now passed, but if you have not yet done so you can still contact CIW by calling 03007900 126 and selecting option 4.
