Default child space ratio - space requirement for children

Hi, to add on, Englands Ey's statutory welfare requirements, page 34 of EYFS framework
Quote:
In registered provision, providers must meet the following space
  • children under two years: 3.5m2 per child
  • two year olds: 2.5m2 per child
  • children aged three to five years: 2.3m2 per child
----------------------------------

From Wales national minimal standards for regulated child care
page 48 when navigated using the PDF reader
Quote:
21.8 The indoor playing space provides at least the following minimum per child:
  • under 2 years 3.7 sq. metres
  • 2 years 2.8 sq. metres
  • 3 - 7 years 2.3 sq. metres
----------------------------------

Scotland's national care standards - space for children

Hi
this is also in the EYFS pack under statutory guidance

but here is a little that might help you:

• If in your setting you have a professional with a relevant level 6 qualification working directly with the children, the staffing levels then become 1 adult to 13 children, at least one member of staff must hold a relevant level 3 qualification.
All relevant qualifications must be defined by CWDC. The ratios relate to staff working directly with the children, suitable staff must be available to cover staff breaks, holidays, sickness and time spent on courses or with parents. There must be at least two members of staff on duty at any one time when children are present.


All the other ratio's also states that a person holding a relevant level 3 qualification must be present
