Would Ofsted grant a variation for 4under5's for 4days a wk, it is sibling of existing after schoolie.

It would mean me having

my ds 4.5yrs
my dd 2yrs
mindee 19mths
mindee 19mths

and then my schoolies

mindee 5yrs
mindee 6yrs
mindee 8yrs

Normally for a sibling yes. I have had four under fives for five days a week in the past and did that for 2 years.

I'd have thought you'd get it for siblings. It also helps that none of the children are particularly young.

In the end variation was for 3 days 8.30am - 3.15pm, it took 2 wks but got new certificate this morning.

Little one hopefully starts in 4wks as they have 2 give nursery notice :)
