Sorry Missymoo - employing an assistant doesn't automatically increase your numbers, I'm afraid

It is more complicated than that - space is a concern (both indoor & outdoor)

You will need a clause on your certificate before an assistant can start working

Ofsted Factsheet: Assistants
That may be of some help. As Katymac says, an assistant may not increase your numbers... there are other factors to consider.
