The importance of ALWAYS using an Ofsted Registered Provider

The safety of your child is your most important concern when choosing a childcare provider this school holiday. You will enquire and do you research to see; are the coaches qualified? Is there a first aider? What are the safeguarding policies? Is it safe for my child? Is there enough staff at the venue? Finding the answers to all of these questions can be time consuming, especially with lots of providers to choose from.
