Hi, a child minder friend currently has a variation to have 4 mindees under 5 , she is due to give birth in a few weeks and wanted to go back to minding a few weeks after, she was wondering if she wouold get a variation for 5 under 5? Would be until sept and oldest mindee leaves for school so for a couple of months, their ages are:
4 1/2
4 1/2
2 1/2
I didnt think ofsted would grant 5 under 5s but wondered if anyone had any ideas? She doesnt have any older 1's or schoolies, thanks :)

I think only really Ofsted can answer that. I'd have thought it unlikely they would grant it with such a young baby of her own, but you never know.

I have had a variation before for 5 EY children, but it was only for an hour a day, twice a week and only for a couple of months.

Could she take on an assistant to help cover the time until Sept?

It would prob be for 1 day a week to help mum as the nursery they go to on some days couldnt fit them in, thanks for the reply :)
