What is Ofsted?
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.
Ofsted's role is to inspect and regulate England-based services that care for children and young people as well as services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
As a nursery or childcare provider based in England you must be registered with Ofsted as they must carry out inspections and regulatory visits.
The results are then published online so you can use them to improve the overall quality of education and training in your setting.
