Participants in the programme receive one announced inspection (two for participants of less than two years) over a twelve month period and are expected to carry out a self audit. The first inspection identifies the areas in the nursery that need attention. The inspection sheet, which remains with the nursery after the audit, can be used as a guide to implement any changes necessary. The score achieved on the second audit is final.
