Preparing for ERO

As you know your centre will be reviewed by the Education Review Office [ERO] in the near future. ERO reviews are part of being a licensed centre and it is an opportunity to celebrate your centre and Playcentre. Below is a guide to help you work through the ERO process to ensure that it is a smooth process for you and your centre.

ERO visits are a very small snapshot of your centre practice. Prior to the visit ERO will consider the documentation you submit to them and on the day they will arrive at the start of the session, stay for the whole session and meet with a small group of parents at the end of session.

The ERO advice to centres:

“Think about our visit as a visit from your mother in law. In preparation give your house a good spring clean, but don’t do any major renovations.”
