Staff child ratios


Recommended Posts

I know this may sound stupid but a colleague as told me that a worker can be left alone with 4 two year olds......in old statutory guidance it said that there had to be two staff on duty at all time no matter how many children were in the session.


I insist on being 2 staff on duty even if there were only 4 in the session/

  • I always find it frustrating that childminders can have more children if the children are over the age of 8, a childminder I see at school regularly has 6 to 8 children, including 3 under 5's....

    A scenario could be one childminder (e.g. needing the loo), being responsible for 1 newborn, 3 two-year-olds and 2 five-year-olds. (I looked up ratios on Pacey's website.)
