    I believe it's 17... that's what they said when I asked about my dd.

    Doubtful they will let you increase your numbers though for a 17 year old.

    Also be aware if you go over 6 you will need planning permission to be legal.

    I'd ring Ofsted and see what they say if you want to pursue it

    My son registered as an assistant at 16, but we were unable to raise our numbers.
