Hello. I have had an enquiry about a 4 year old who is at full time school I know at the moment, the rules can class this child as an over 5. But I know this was questioned in the EYFS a while ago...Does anybody know if anything has been decided?

I wouldn't want to take her on (before/after school) if she is to take up one of my under 5 spaces, as I can only have 2 under 5s as my DD is under 1. But if she classes as an over 5, this would be fine.

Anybody know?

NCMA have not updated their news page about this as yet (checked today, 23-July-08).

I am a CM with a 4 y/o that is about to start school in Sept, and I have just written to Ofsted to ask for my numbers to be changed. They have phoned and said that is fine, so I can take on an another under 5 from Sept.
