Newsletter July 2013

In the July 2013 issue we have news about the government's new consultation on proposed changes to the regulation of childcare settings — changes which will particularly affect out of school clubs. We also cover the latest survey of the cost of holiday childcare, and the government's report 'More affordable childcare'. We also have a new article about which members of staff require a DBS check, together with information about which policies, forms and other items of documentation will need updating as a result of changes to how DBS certificates are issued.

We also have our usual round-up of other news from the sector, tips for your Ofsted inspection, and a couple of great ideas to keep the children busy during the summer holidays.
