Are you looking for a fun and safe place for your child to spend their school holidays? Choosing an Ofsted registered holiday camp is an excellent option for parents who want to ensure that their child receives high-quality childcare and an enjoyable experience.

Here are 4 reasons why parents should choose an Ofsted registered holiday camp

  1. Quality assurance. Ofsted is the regulatory body responsible for inspecting and regulating childcare providers in England. By choosing an Ofsted registered holiday camp, parents can be assured that the provider has met the necessary standards for safety, quality of care and learning opportunities. Ofsted assesses a range of factors, including staff qualifications, child-to-staff ratios, health and safety, and safeguarding policies and procedures.
  2. Peace of mind. Leaving your child in the care of someone else can be a worrying experience for parents. Choosing an Ofsted registered holiday camp can provide peace of mind that your child is in safe hands and receiving quality care.
  3. Childcare vouchers. Parents can use childcare vouchers to pay for Ofsted registered holiday camps. This can help to reduce the cost of childcare and save parents money. Childcare vouchers are provided by employers as part of a salary sacrifice scheme and can be used to pay for Ofsted registered childcare up to a certain amount per week.
  4. Safe and fun environment. Ofsted registered holiday camps provide a safe and fun environment for children to learn, play and socialise with others. Children can participate in a range of activities and sports, from football and cricket to drama and art.

Checking for Ofsted registration is a crucial step before booking a place with a childcare provider

To ensure that a provider is registered with Ofsted, parents should:

  1. Ask the organisation for their relevant Ofsted registration number. Each number is specific to the venue, and each venue should have its own.
  2. Ask the organisation to provide their Ofsted registration certificate, which should also be specific to the venue.
  3. Contact Ofsted directly by calling 0300 123 1231 or by visiting their website if the provider cannot provide the necessary information.
