Detail

This ‘registration not required’ factsheet explains the types of childcare that do not need to register with Ofsted. Please read it before using the exemption notification form. If you do not need to register with Ofsted, because you are exempt from doing so, you may still choose to do so by joining the voluntary part of the Childcare Register, as long as you meet the requirements for registration on the voluntary part of the register. The information at the end of this guidance tells you how to find these requirements.
