Your son still takes up a full time under 5's space as you are responsible for him - holidays, sickness etc...

If the little girl goes to school for 10 sessions a week she will be classed as over 5 and you could have the 3 year old or another under 5.

I am now confused, and very worried. hoping i have misunderstood!
i have 2 kids of my own one who is 2 and the other 4 but he starts school next week so i thought as soon as he was at school full time he counted as over 5? is that not right?
