Young children at risk by poor safety at nurseries

A recent BBC article has highlighted that poor safety at about 1,000 nurseries and childminders in England may put children at risk.

A further 14,600 providers of care to the under-fives were judged only ‘satisfactory’ for safety at their most recent Ofsted inspection. Ofsted said safety issues ranged from relatively minor to serious failures to vet staff or keep premises secure.
