Early Years Framework Written Answer, 05/08/10 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Margaret Smith's (LD) question asking the Scottish Executive what action it took following the publication of the Early Years Framework to ensure that the Care Commission develop early intervention as an inspection focus for daycare of children services in 2009-10.

The Minister for Children and Early Years, Adam Ingram, replied that the Care Commission agreed with the Scottish Government that during 2009-10, they would look at how regulated services support childrenís development and learning by involving parents and carers. To that end, Care Commission officers advised all early years day care providers of this and sampled these services to gauge the extent to which parents and carers were being involved. This was also explained to providers at a seminar "Implementing the Early Years Framework: Delivering a Strategy for Effective Intervention" which was held in Edinburgh in May 2009 and chaired by the Care Commissionís chief executive.
