EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

Under Part 2 of the Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010, a person who acts as a child minder or provides day care for children under the age of eight must be registered with the Welsh Ministers.

Article 3 of this Order, made under section 19(4) of the Measure, amends section 19 of the Measure to extend the registration requirement to persons who act as a child minder or provide day care for children under the age of twelve. It also makes consequential amendments.

Articles 7 and 11 of this Order provide that a person who is registered immediately before 1 April 2016 to provide care for children under the age of eight is to be treated on and after the 1 April 2016 as registered to provide care for children under the age of twelve.

Articles 8 and 12 of this Order apply where a child minder or day care provider is in breach of their conditions of registration as a result of the extension of the registration requirement.

Under articles 9 and 13 of this Order, applications for registration received by the Welsh Ministers before 1 April 2016 are to be treated as though received on 1 April 2016.

Article 14 provides that the extension of the registration requirement in article 3 does not affect the suspension of a person’s registration.

This Order comes into force on 1 April 2016.

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to this Order. As a result, a regulatory impact assessment has been prepared as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with this Order. A copy can be obtained from the Education and Public Services Group, Welsh Government, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF10 3NQ.
