Completing your Self-Assessment of Service Statement (SASS): Childcare and play services
From January 2020, CIW will be going online for childcare and play providers which means registered providers must carry out all of their business with CIW online.
All childcare and play providers must complete and submit their SASS online. Only the Responsible Individual or Registered Person can complete the SASS.
Letters have been sent to all childcare and play providers to inform them they will need to create and activate their CIW Online account in preparation for completing the SASS.
CIW Online will be available for providers to complete and submit the SASS from 6 January 2020. The deadline to submit the SASS is 11 February 2020. As this is a regulatory requirement of the Child Minding and Day Care (Wales) Regulations 2010 (Regulation 17), failure to submit the SASS will mean that you will not be complying with the law. This may affect your rating at inspection and enforcement action may be taken.
