Checking For Ofsted Registration

It is important to do some prior research before booking a place with a childcare provider. It’s easy and straight forward to check if a provider is registered with Ofsted…

  • Before making a booking, ask the organisation for their relevant Ofsted registration number. It is important to note; each number is specific to the venue and each venue should have its own.

  • Ask the organisation to provide their Ofsted registration certificate. Again, this should also be specific to the venue and each venue should have their own.

  • Failing the above, you can contact Ofsted directly by calling 0300 123 1231 or by visiting
