Yesterday I was very chuffed that Ofsted agreed to me having 4 under 5's again I've asked for a few variations since I started and this time they asked me to complete a spreadsheet for them which they've never asked before.

Soooooooooo, from now on I will use their spreadsheet when I make my request(s) as I'm sure it will speed things along. It's nothing major, just giving mindees names, ages and times they will be here. It's more for people requesting variation for certain hours i.e. this request was for 4 under 5 from 2.45-5.30.

If anyone wants me to email a copy of their spreadsheet to keep on file in case could be useful in the future, let me know. My email address is info at helenslittleangels dot co dot uk

Just a i actually have to have the new cert before I can start with the 4th under 5? Or is it enough that I have it confirmed in an email? Parents want me to start next week and Ofsted knew this when they agreed.

hennipenni · 02/05/2007 16:58

YES YES YES, you need to wait untill you get your certificate. I was told by somebody from ofsted that I didn't need to wait- it was only when IU spoke to the inspector that I was told that I couldn't take on the extra child until my cert came through. Nearly got myself into a lot of trouble over that.

I have just emailed you for the same.

Have never applied for a varitaion before, is it normally by letter or email. I will have a overlap of three hours one day a week till Sept with siblings so need to get one fast.

Any advise would be great

All others have been replied to so if you haven't heard back from me, email me again as I may have missed you.
