Our long standing pre-school of 37 years has outgrown it's tatty old village hall. However, we may have the

opportunity to move down the road to a new village hall! Has anyone else been through this process and has knowledge or advice they could share regarding change of name, registration etc. I have looked through the ofsted site but have been unsuccessful so far!

 

thankyou

Ofsted will need to okay your new premises so they'll do a visit and measure stuff and tell you how many children you can register for. (That's what happened to us anyway)

 

thanks Cait. Did u have to re-register your provision or did u just move everything from one building to the other and continue trading??

Well ours was because we were being 'shunted' out of the school hall so had to move to the church hall, it was a continuation of provision - just a premises change, but was have fewer toilets now so our registered places number dropped. They came out at this sort of time of year to look at the church hall and made some recommendations and we moved all the stuff over the Christmas break. We had the weeks between now and January to implement their recommendations. The only change was the registered number of children. We did loads of fresh risk assessments of course, but nothing else changed.

Haha - well ours was 2006, so it wouldn't surprise me that things have changed. Mind you, having said that, ours was meant to be only a temporary move, from January to July that year - but we're still there!!!

We simply changed our name, only dropping part of it and Ofsted said we had to re-register this week, even though premises and staff/committee stayed the same!

 

Good Luck
