Type Of Provision


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me the definitions of the types of provision?


Can't get to my Ofsted Registration Certificate at the moment to check if it's on there but is a pre school run by a voluntary committee classed as voluntary or independent? Does anyone know of any definitions on the web?

I don't think your registration certificate will specify what kind of group you are, but which register(s) you're on - so your group would be something like 'group childcare on non-domestic premises' (or whatever the terminology is). Mind you, my certificate still says 'full day care' so what do I know?


If your group is a committee group, then you're voluntary. I think independent has a distinct meaning, as in independent (ie not State-run) schools.


However, I stand to be corrected by someone who has more knowledge than I!

I am not sure at all!! but I thought the PVI sector was:


Private - preschool/nursery/playgroup settings that do not have committees and are not state maintained


Voluntary - settings where there is a committee ie run by volunteers


Independent- as in 'independent schools' which just to add to the confusion are often referred to as private schools.


I currently work in a preschool that is privately owned and managed but used to work in the nursery of an independent school


Sorry not making much sense tonight!!
