    Question please clarify numbers rule

    Hi everyone

    Just a quick question to reassure myself that I have understood the wording on numbers of children correctly.

    I am registered for 6 children, of those only 3 can be under 5 & 1 under 1year of age at any one time.

    So......
    is it ok to have 3 toddlers? I have a Mum at work saying she would like to send her twins to me and they are 14 months old. I also will have a 21 month old. So my 'baby' space is taken up by a toddler (which is fine by me )

    Just needed to clarify

    Thanks

    It's fine Karen but it's a heck of a lot of work when you already have a little one of your own! It's 3 high chairs and a triple buggy and Are you sure??

    As everyone has said - you are fine within your numbers but I would have a trial period as 3 so little can be hectic
