My boy starts ft school in September and his 5th birthday is October.
Will OFSED add another mindee to my under 5's in September as he's a rising 5, or do I have to wait till his birthday?

Yes my DS2 isn't 5 until July and has been moved up on my cert since last September when he started school.

thank goodness for tthat. I've got a little one starting in September and suddenly panicked I'd be over numbers. I seem to remember there was a lot of debate / confusion over the situation with your own children.
Panic over!

Yes they will :thumbsup: DS was 5 last November and when I got inspected last July she put it on my certificate then along with the mindee that was also starting full time school at the same time.

Just remember that it won't get changed until they are doing full time school- which was 3 weeks in for my DS so we were nearing the end of September.
