Regulation 3(1)(d) sets out that childcare consisting only of day care (e.g. children’s nurseries with daytime sleeping accommodation) are not children’s homes.
If a non-looked after child is placed in a private children’s home other than by a voluntary organisation, the person carrying on the home (i.e. the registered provider) must prepare a placement plan for that child in accordance with regulations 4 and 5 of the Arrangements for Placement of Children by Voluntary Organisations and Others (England) Regulations 2011.
