Inspection of other organisations by the Dutch Inspectorate

The Dutch Inspectorate assesses the performance of the municipalities with respect to their tasks for childcare and toddler playgrounds.

Which organisations are inspected except schools?

In addition to its tasks with respect to the quality of education in schools and other educational institutions, the Inspectorate is ‘meta-supervisor’ for childcare and toddler playgrounds.

Performance of municipalities

On the basis of the results from annual questionnaires administered to all about 400 municipalities, the Inspectorate assesses the performance of the municipalities with respect to their tasks for childcare and toddler playgrounds. The report is sent to Parliament.

Since 2009 the Inspectorate has been investing a lot in contacts with individual municipalities, with the intention to operate in a tailor made way aiming to improve the quality of the performance of the municipalities in this area.
