Working together for your children
In our setting we maintain the ratio of adults to children in the setting that is set through the Welfare Requirements. We can have a maximum of 18 children per session. The ratio of adults to children for three year olds is 1 : 6. The ratio of adults to children for 2 year olds is 1 : 4. At each session at least one member of staff is qualified to at least NVQ level 3 and a First Aider is always present. We also have volunteer parent helpers and work experience students where possible to complement these ratios. This helps us to:
§ give time and attention to each child;
§ talk with the children about their interests and activities;
§ help children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide; and
§ allow the children to explore and be adventurous in safety.
