Early years childcare fees regulations

Closes 9 Oct 2019

Opened 18 Jul 2019

Overview

We are seeking views on proposed changes to early years fees paid to Ofsted, and on the principles that should underpin a revised fee model.

Why We Are Consulting

The aim of this consultation is to seek views on a proposed increase to the application fee and annual fee paid to Ofsted by early years providers on Ofsted's Early Years Register, with a view of changes coming into force from April 2020.

We are also seeking views on the principles that should underpin a revised Early Years Register fee model to be introduced from April 2021.

The consultation applies to early years providers in England only and will run for 12 weeks.
