EYP ratios


Recommended Posts


I think I know the answer but just wanted to check in advance of a possible staffing issue - normally I'd have 2 level three staff and myself (an EYP) in but if I have two 2 yr olds and 11 over 3's in on a session (13 total) would I be able to run with myself and one other level 3 staff member?

Don't especially want to work with these ratios but with staff off Ill this week im checking in advance what may need to happen and if I need to close at all.

fine here too - 2 of your three year old's make up the 1:4 ratio for two's.

This leaves 9 three year old's so you are 1 over but covered by being EYP (as long as you are working with them so lock the door, switch off the doorbell and don't answer the phone - bliss!)

Thank you...as I thought...staff off sick so had to work all day (8 hrs) today with no break at all so not looking forward to another full on day with even more stretched ratios but needs must I guess. May have to avoid liquids so I don't need the toilet though...!
