mum of lo gave notice at the beginning of April, due to illness/work pressures she was finishing work, I adverised the space and have been lucky enough to fill it new lo starts next week.
Mum of the first lo has been in touch, she's going back to work in a few weeks can I still have lo.
My question is can I apply for a variation on the grounds of continuation of care?
I will have 1 under 1 and 3 under 3's until 1pm after that I will have 1 under 1, 2 under 3's and a 3 year old

I suggest you contact them and explain.

I suggest you try. We had a similar situation a couple of months back, they granted us a variation for 2 days :D

If you don't ask you don't get - I would say that it is worth filling the variation form in with as much detail as possible and sending it off. The worse they can do is say no.

They have granted me a variation for 5 days a week to have 4 under 5 with 2 under 1.

I've sent of the form so I'll keep my fingers crossed,
Writing it all down I'll only need the variation for a couple of days every 2 weeks because of shift workers and ad hoc care so hopefully that'll work in my favour!!

Fingers crossed I hope you get your variation x
