please can someone confirm for definate when i can class my 4 yr old mindee as being in my 5-8 category?

she starts school full time in january but won't actually be 5 until 30th June.

i thought she was classed as 5 from the day she starts school full time but another minder said she couldn't class her mindee as 5 until the august after her 5th birthday! which is it???

When a child is at school full time then they are classed as 5 for the purposes of ratios.
