Ratios for rising threes

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by minizog94, Feb 12, 2012.

  1. Just a quick question: When calculating ratios, are rising threes counted as 2 year olds or 3 year olds? Can't find any clear guidance - probably looking in the wrong place! Thank you

  3. It depends on the grouping. Rising 3s - ie those still 2 but having their 3rd birthday during the TERM, count as being 3 for ratio purposes, as long as they are in the minority of the group. If the majority of the group is 2, then the 2 year old ratio applies to the group.
     
  4. Thanks. That's a real help x

    I have been searching for this infornation for weeks!!

    Can you tell me where it comes from as everywhere else I have looked sayswe have to stick to the statutory rules on ratio, ie 1:4 for 2 year olds.
