Interesting reading thanks can you clarify what the definitions on resigned / cancellations are and do they include lapsed registrations do you think?

Resigned is when a childminder hands back their certificate.
Cancellations are when Ofsted decides to de-register someone.
Cancellations could include lapsed registrations, though would expect Ofsted would send notification of intention (NOI) to Cancel... but if say someone has moved address without telling Ofsted then they may not get that letter. If someone got the NOI to Cancel it is better for them to Resign, as then they can be a childminder in the future... if Ofsted de-register someone I don't think they can re-register again.
