Staff qualifications

EYFS & Childcare

The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets out the requirements for staff to child ratios in settings delivering the EYFS and the qualification levels that practitioners must hold.

Holders of Level 2 qualifications that are considered full and relevant can be counted within the ratios at Level 2.
