As formal arrangements are considered four types of childcare and education: Education at pre-school, Education at compulsory school, Childcare at centre-based services outside school hours (before/after) and Childcare at day-care centre. Therefore, formal arrangements include all kind of care organised/controlled by a structure (public, private). Care provided by childminders without any structure between the carer and the parents (direct arrangements) have been excluded from the definition of "formal care" in order to take into account only childcare recognised as fulfilling certain quality patterns. The duration refers to average number of hours during a usual week. This information is collected from EU-SILC.
