I know this has been covered before but I have read all I can and still am not convinced! I was under the impression that the new eyfs has been so relaxed that if one day I was so needed desperatly by parents I could in theory care for 6 early years children as long as all necessary risk assessments etc are in place! It's not that I plan to do this but another childminder has said that it is still most definatly no more than four no matter what? I was in a situation this Tuesday where if I had let children cross over like the parents needed I would have had 5 under 5 with me but I was scared and let them down???
