If the Cylch Meithrin committee (a body corporate or an unincorporated association) is registered with CIW, a Responsible Individual, who is responsible for day to day supervision of the Cylch Meithrin, must be appointed.
If the Cylch Meithrin committee is a body corporate (e.g.CIO), the person appointed as the Responsible Individual must be an officer of the committee e.g Trustee or Director or a manager that works in the cylch.
If the organisation is an unincorporated association (e.g committee with a constitution or a Registered Charity) the Responsible Individual must be an officer or a member of its governing body.
It is the responsible individual who will generally be expected to demonstrate ongoing compliance on behalf of the Cylch Meithrin with CIW regulations
‘These are National Minimum Standards for registration and in order to provide quality childcare, the general expectation is that Responsible Individual / Registered Persons work toward ensuring that these basic standards are exceeded’.
