Hi

Can anyone tell me, is it O K (with Ofsted) to put one 2 year old with two 0 to 2yrs and have one member of staff at all? never? If so when?

We had this discussion to day and could not agree

Thank you Rosina

Hi I am not sure about the under twos as we only have 2,3,4 year olds but when ofsted came into us they made it clear that we are not to mix our two year olds with our three year olds. So we have to ahave a member of staff for one two year old and one for the three year olds. Hope this makes sence and is of some use.

We have all our 2,3 and 4 year olds together with a ratio of 1 adult for up to 4 under 3s and 1:8 for the rest. Don't know about younger.

Anita, when you say that you were told not to mix your 2 and 3 year olds, what do you mean exactly? We have a room for 2-5s so no chance of keeping them apart! And all staff work with all children, although the correct ratios are always maintained within the room obviously.

 

Just a bit confused! :o

I think she meant mix ratios rather than the children themselves. xD
