    Default Taking on assistants

    I already work with my oh as my assistant with 6 little ones. Have had an enquiry for a nursery pick up late morning which would take us to 7 for around an hour or so. If I register my mum to help for this hour can I do it? Sorry just having a dumb moment and can't think straight!

    2. Check your floor space very carefully - you have to be sure you can fit the current children in before you think about more -

    3. If that's all in place you can have a max of 3 members of staff working together ... hth
