Can anyone remember how many square feet per child you need? I am sure I read somewhere that Ofsted do, or used to, decide how many children you can look after by going off the square footage per child. I just need a rough figure really.

Thanks for the replies. I knew I had read it somewhere but could not put my finger on it when someone asked me this morning.
