most recent framework? 2 Year old ratios


Recommended Posts


I was hoping someone could help. 

Is the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, that was Published: 3 March 2017 Effective: 3 April 2017, the most relevant guidance? 

I have been told by a colleague that the ratio for 2 year olds is 1:6, but I believe that it is 1:4, I was just trying to find out if this was still the case, or if I have missed an update to the ratios. 

They are talking about having 'older 2year olds' - but I still think they are counted in the 1:4 ratio of 2 year olds, until they are actually 3.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Yes 1:4, not 1:6 and yes you do currently have the most recent edition of the statutory framework.

There was something on rising threes in schools for the purpose of registration, but this did not affect ratio. This was changed with the growth of two year provision in schools.
