More staff (1 to 4 children), a large supply of spare nappies, eyes in your neck and plenty of patience.

Technically a 2.5 yr old is still a 2 year old - so ratios should already be 1:4 - you may need to notify Ofsted but I would have thought that as you already take 2.5 year olds then you already take 2 year olds - does that make sense. Sorry long day x

Long day for me too - and got a cold! So, if you accept 2 1/2 year olds, you don't need to do anything.

check your registration with ofsted - gives you the age bands you can care for.

speak to your development worker / EY support teacher they should be able to give you more information on where to go next and things you need to do (if you need to do anything)

maybe some training for working with 2 yr olds

 

If you have 2-5yr olds there shouldn't be much to change.

If you are registered on Early Years Register you are already registered for 0-5 years, just need to make sure that you meet the Statutory Framework requirements for the different age groups re staff qualifications, ratios and space etc. Your certificate will say 'xxxx setting is registered on the Early Years register'

Maybe just check with your insurance company but to be honest it probably states 2 year olds rather than 2.5 year olds.
