third in charge

Hi 

Can someone please show me where exactly it states it is a legal requirement to have a third in charge, I have run preschools and nurseries for 20 years and have not been aware its legal, I was of the understanding that it is personal choice of the nursery owner/manager but I am being told otherwise.

I think it's just good practice?  

I've only just nominated a 3rd in charge (because I now want more time off) But there has ALWAYS been myself or deputy in, most of the time both of us.

(Term-time preschool)

have just read through the new inspection framework (yawn!) can't seem to find it in there! If I was away from the setting my deputy is in charge ...I wouldn't want to nominate another as both my other staff are similarly qualified...might cause some issues!:o

Thanks Ladies, it has ha me questioning my knowledge, I have actually contacted ofsted to as to cover myself and was told that it is not a requirement. Just got try to convince someone otherwise now!! as it will bring nothing but trouble to a setting that I am only just seeing a light at the end of the tunnel in with having taken it over with horrendous staffing issues and low morale.

Sunny please we are not all bad!!!!xDxD

to be honest I have no problem with ours...  they just don't visit anymore. We don't seem to have  update briefings anymore either :| We're just left to get on with it.

Well I feel very honoured having had my visit from two of them last week. 🤪. I happen to like both of them as well as they are ‘real’ and don’t come up with lots of flowery ideas that you just know will not work!  I actually find the annual visit very useful.
