ive just had an enquiry for a 9 year old but when i registrered i said i would only be having under 8's (didn't think about having older ones at the time)

do i need to let ofsted know about me having over 8's or is ok as long as when they inspect me i can show that it doesn't effect the under 8's in my care.

Thanks in advance.

I dont know the answer to this but didnt want to read and run.
Hope you get sorted x

Over 8s don't figure in Ofsted's numbers so no, you don't have to tell them.

You will be insured for a maximum number of children as well so that's ok.

The Eyfs states the care of over 8s must not stop you effectively looking after under 8s... :D

You need to do some research...

Check what the local after school clubs are charging and be competitive.

Ask him what he likes... probably a combination of Tv, computer, something hand held and electronic and football :D
