How do I know my child will be safe and secure
Breakfast clubs registered with the Ofsted are checked to make sure the staff are suitable to look after children. At least half of the staff must be trained/qualified and there are rules on the number of staff depending on the number and the ages of the children catered for.
A check is also done on the premises of the breakfast club to ensure they are safe and suitable for children.
The breakfast club registration and inspection certificate should be displayed and you can ask to see their most recent Ofsted report.
Breakfast clubs catering for children eight years and over are not required to be registered but may choose to register on the voluntary part of the Ofsted childcare register and many will be 'quality assured' by a scheme recognised by the Government. If they are registered, play workers and at least half of the staff will be trained / qualified.
