Staff

For more information on the numbers of staff you will need to employ and the staff: child ratios please refer to the Early Years foundation stage statutory framework (EYFS) This statutory framework also gives more information on who can be counted in ratios depending on their qualifications. The DfE have produced – Check early years qualifications to support you to find out if a person’s qualifications allow them to work in an early years setting, and if you can include then in staff:child ratios. 

*For care of the over 5’s see Registration section below.
