    Is it? I don't think it is at all.

    "Out of school clubs" is so vague that I'm having trouble thinking of anything that's obviously not in any of those categories.

    I would say (maybe) that the list above are of set-ups that are subject to statutory government (local or national) rules. Not as in laws, but rules written specifically by governmental department. (The only quirk are the music lessons... but if they're arranged through schools... Private lessons won't count for vouchers - I bet... Like 5p, because I don't know.)

    Scouts doesn't fall under that category. We adhere to laws (civil and criminal) and have our own gold standard rules in POR (no laughing at the back)... But they weren't written by any governmental body, they were written by a crack team of Scouters, ummm, a crack team of management consultants, erm, a team??

    Is what I think.

    "They can be used by any nursery, playgroup, nanny, childminder or au pair who is Ofsted registered – most are.

    "Surprisingly, you can also use childcare vouchers for tuition for your child – as the tutor is providing 'childcare' at the same time as tuition. However, the tutor/institution must again be Ofsted registered and also happy to accept vouchers, so check first."

    This from https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/fa...vouchers/#what
    Which also says that the scheme is closed to new entrants, and that an alternative scheme Tax-Free Childcare also requires that the provider is Ofsted registered.
