 Register(s): Ofsted register care provided for children on two registers, the Early Years Register (EYR) and the Childcare Register, which has a compulsory (CCR) and voluntary (VCR) component. People can
apply to join one register or both registers at the same time. Most childcare providers caring for children aged under eight must register with Ofsted unless the law says they are not required to do so. If a childcare
provider is not required to register with Ofsted, then in some circumstances they may choose to do so by joining the voluntary part of the Childcare Register (VCR). For further information, visit our website at:

http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/Ofsted-home/Forms-and-guidance/Browse-all-by/Other/General/Factsheet-childcare-Registration-not-required
2
 Providers are the number of providers registered on the database at the time of the report. As not all providers inform Ofsted that they have ceased provision, this number is likely to be higher than the actual
number of providers.
3
 Registered places are the number of children that may attend the provision at any one time. Registered places are not the number of places occupied, nor the number of children who may benefit from receiving
places through providers offering sessions at different times of the day. Place numbers are only collected for providers on the EYR. For these providers, the numbers show the total places available for children
under eight. Averages are used for a very small number of providers whose place numbers are not available at the time of the analysis. There may be small discrepancies in totals due to rounding.


Regional breakdowns will not include providers whose local authority is not recorded in their registration data or home childcarers who are registered to look after children in England but live outside the country.

Types of Early Years provision

Childminder
This is a person who is registered to look after one or more children, to whom they are not related, for reward. Childminders work with no more
than two other childminders or assistants.
They care for:
     children on domestic premises that are not usually the home of one of the children unless they care for children from more than two
     families wholly or mainly in the homes of the families
     at least one individual child for a total of more than two hours in any day. This is not necessarily a continuous period of time.

Childcare providers
Childcare providers care for at least one individual child for a total of more than two hours in any day. This is not necessarily a continuous
period of time. They must register to care for children under the age of eight, unless they are not required to do so; and can choose to register
to care for older children.

Childcare providers on domestic premises
These are people providing care on domestic premises with at least three other people. They can provide the care directly or employ people to
work with them. The difference between childminding and childcare on domestic premises is the number of people involved. If four or more
people look after children at any time they are providing childcare on domestic premises, not childminding.

Childcare providers on non-domestic premises
These are people providing care for individual children in premises that are not someone’s home. These premises can range from converted
houses to purpose built nurseries.

Home childcarers
Home childcarers care for children of any age up to their 18th birthday wholly or mainly in the home of a child being cared for, and care
for children from no more than two families. They can only register on the voluntary part of the Childcare Register. Click on the link below
