I've just started my second term in Nursery. And I'm hoping some of you on these forums could help me with these questions - 1. Ratios. I know it's 1:13. There are 26 children with a teacher and nursery nurse. Am I right in thinking that it doesn't matter if there are more than 13 outside and less inside? Or can each adult really be with 13 or less? We usually have one adult inside and one outside but the children are never in two groups of 13 seeing as it's free-flow. The head has been muttering about maintaining the ratio. Please help. 2. I'm being observed for performance management purposes soon. What are you normally observed doing? A group time, a focus activity?? Thanks in advance.
