There are many different types of provisions for example statuary, voluntary and private. Statuary this means it’s been set by the government as a law and its compulsory for children to attend. “These are provided by either local authorities or central government departments.” (Beaver (2008…19) One example of as statutory provision is a primary school. Children normally commence primary school at around five years of age and that will be there for seven years then move on to secondary school. Primary schools try to develop children’s knowledge. Skills and understanding to help children in later life. The main subjects that are taught in schools are based around the National curriculum. The national curriculum is a common programme of study in schools that is designed to ensure nationwide uniformity of standards in education. An example of subjects that are taught In primary school are maths and English. All maintained schools in England are required to follow the national curriculum.” (beaver,m (2008…19) The reason the subjects are taught is because it determines the content of what will be taught and sets attainment targets for learning, it also gives teachers. Pupils, parents, employers and the wider community a clear and shared understanding of the skills and knowledge that the young people will gain at school. This supports families financially because its free education it means that parents can go out to work and this supports the children because there getting the education they need. Another type of setting is voluntary this means it’s an organisation free of charge but this is not always the case this enables children of all ages to attend. “These are services that are provided by organisations such as charities where some or all of their funding comes from donations” (tassoni, p (2007…3) An example of this is a youth bus a youth bus is an organisation service that the local people choose to put on with or without pay. For example this service came down every Thursday to outside of our local park. If it was cold we would go onto the bus and have hot chocolate or coffee whichever one we wanted and watch films. If it was a nice day they would bring outdoor activities for us like rounder’s, tennis, football. We would pay little donations for hot chocolate and biscuits and they would count all the money and triple it so we could go on days out to Drayton manor. This was brilliant because it got us of the streets and stopped us causing trouble. This supported the children in many different ways how to handle money to make it last, how to socialise and make new friends. It also helped families by keeping them at bay knowing there children are safe and doing something the families had trust in.
Another type of setting is private. A private setting is a provision which parents or carers have to pay a fee for the child to attend. “These are a profit-making services.” (beaver,m (2008…12) An example of a private provision is a day nursery, day nurseries provide a safe and structured environment for children less than five years where they can play, learn skills, be part of a group and make friends while their parents or carers work or study. Day nurseries must be registered with Ofsted (office for standards in education.) they inspect the nursery to check that the standards relating to health and safety, equipment ,care, learning and play are met including disclosure and banning checks for all staff. Day nurseries are all about creating places where young children can play learn eat and rest. There are many opportunities to do art work story time and dancer to music also they have the option of free floe which is where they can choose what they would like to do. Day care supports parents because it enables them to go to work knowing there children are in a safe environment and enjoying playing with other children knowing there getting healthy meals and drinks.
