Toddler Room with Under 2's Ratio

Post by Macoola » Tue Sep 22, 2020 3:25 pm

Hi, I am currenlty working permanatley in the toddler room. We have up to 20 children a day with 4 staff which is fine.

Though we have 6 children who are not yet 2 years old. Admitably not all 6 usually attend on the same day, but yesterday we had 4 of the 6 under 2's there. It was a hard day as two of the children are new and one cannot walk yet.

So my question is; should our ratio be based on the youngest child in the room? Thus being 1:4 or because they are all anywhere between 1 and 4 months off turning 2 is the 1:5 ratio somehow ok?

Thanks,

Macoola
