Footnotes

  1. Since 2019, data cleaning exercises with local authorities each year have improved data quality. Provider types have become more accurately recorded over the years and caution should therefore be taken when comparing changes in provider types between years, particularly for childminders and state-funded governor run provision, which has been reclassified from other in some instances.
  2. 'Total' includes staff without a level 2 qualification, level 3 qualification or accredited graduate status.  
  3. These percentages are the proportion of all staff at that provider type who have a specific qualification, not the proportion of all staff with a specific qualification. Therefore, provider types will not sum to 100%.
  4. State-funded governor-run provision is included in the private, voluntary and independent providers category because data for these providers is returned on the early years census.
  5. Data collected in 2021 (and to a lesser extent 2022) was affected by the impact of COVID-19 uncertainty on providers and parents. Further information is available in the methodology note.
  6. Local authority day nurseries are included in the private, voluntary and independent providers category because data for these providers is returned on the early years census.
