I was thinking about getting my mum involved,and having her as an assistant.Just wondering what the ratios for childminder to child is.
At the moment i am registered for 3 under 5,would it increase to more than 3 with my mum as my assistant?
Hope that makes sense

My CC officer told me i would still only be allowed 3 under 5 with my mum as an assistant,but my friend who is an elcted member knows someone who has their mum as an assistant is allowed 6 under 5 so who knows?
The CC as we know are a law unto themselves eh?
Oh well maybe someone here wll know

My childminder (n Glasgow) used to have her mum and her MIL helping, so as far as I am aware, she could have had up to 9 under 5s. They were there full time though - they didn't just pop in and out to help.
She also had plenty of space though - a very large playroom (used exlcusively for mindees), a separate room that could be used for naps, a large kitchen/dining area and an enormous garden.
