In England, STONE CHILDCARE is inspected and regulated by OFSTED (previously this was administered by Local Authority Social Services). CHILDCARE for children under five is split into CHILDCARE on Domestic Premises which is Childminding and Daycare.
A CHILDCARE (also CHILDCARE school, pre-primary school, kindergarten outside the US and UK) is an educational establishment or learning space offering early childhood education to children between the ages of two and five, prior to the commencement of compulsory education at primary school.
