    There are various models for team teaching that can work well. You need to decide how it is going to work in your setting and be confident that you and your partner are a "team" sharing the workload and responsibility.
  3. we are a 30 place morning nursery and a 30 place reception class unit. We have 2 teachers, 5 TA's and therefore 1 teacher 2 TA's for reception in am 1 teacher and 2 TA's for nursery in am. In the afternoon we have TA's who working with the flexible hours nursery children on a ratio of 1:8 .
    The unit is a long mobile and the teachers working in an area for regisitration and circle time seal etc.
    In adult led activity times 2 adults work outside carrying out lit or Num based activities and 4 inside then during ChIL 3 adults outside and 3 inside and 1 on first aid learnig journeys etc.
    We set up over 3 years ago and have increased our staff to ensure good ratios and now offer additional hours for nursery child up to full time 8.45- 3.05 for £4.05 per day whcih at present make sus about £5,000 per year to provide new resourses and consumables the children ask for from children's chioce activites.
    Hope this helps
