Footnotes

  1. Children who split their entitlement across more than one private, voluntary or independent provider are only counted at the provider where they spend the majority of their time.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. In some years, data for a small number of local authorities is of low reliability due to error. See methodology for more details.
  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.
