Question about staff/kids ratio in nursery

My son is going to a new nursery in September. The age group they take is 3-4.5 yrs but I was a bit shocked about the fact that only 2 people look after 26 children. Does anyone have any experience/knowledge about this?

Yes- i think it is 1:13 for that age group

dd has been attending a nursery where there were 5 staff to 22 children aged 2-4

the staffing ratio for two yr olds is lower- one they hit 3- it goes up to 1:13

If it is a state nursery ( one attached to a school). Then it is 1:13 for over 3's. But if it is a private nusery then the Ratio is 1:8 for that age.
