School Nursery Question


 Share

Recommended Posts

This is exactly how it is run in my school nursery. The nursery class is only open in the morning with myself (teacher) and 2 TAs. Then 1 of the TAs (level 3) can have upto 8 children in the afternoons for 'child-care'.

Yeah i would agree, wrap around and extra half hour can be covered by a level 3, although my school has its own rules!!!!!!!, have told them but they wont listen,our lady however lovely she is , is only a level 1 !

why can it be 1-8 when lev 3 is 1-13 the rest of the day in an early years unit. that seems strange that when its wrap around care its lowered to 1-8.

or am i on the wrong thinking

:oxD

I didn't think anyone who was a level 3 could have 1:13 Mary

 

 

Thanks for your answers everyone

I think that if there is a QTS (or EYP) the other staff can have a ratio of 1:13 rather than 1:8 but this is only when the QTS is present. The original question was referring to a set up which did not have a QTS in the room I believe.

Yet when the OTS is on PPA the level 3 can cover a full class!!!

In nursery the Level 3 would have to have support for PPA, not be alone, but of course they can cover 30 Reception alone for PPA! In the case the OP queries then there would have to be a ratio of 1-8 in the afternoons, which is the ratio with no QTS or EYPS present.

So if the afternoons are wrap-around presumably this is charged for and is 'private' rather than maintained?
