Let childminders in Wales relax their under 5 ratio for continuity of care in line with England

review rules for childminders to be be able to relax ratios for children under 5 for continuity of care to existing families inline with England

Why is this important?

This rule of 3 jnder 5 is inconvenient to families and childminders across Wales when we have to decline extra hours to existing families when childminders in England van deviate away from NMS if they risk assess.

Reasons for signing

  • We need parity with our peers in England we do the same job and should be able to be as flexible as we can be with parents to allow them to work when required
  • Because we should not be prejudiced in this situation, Wales is as part of the United Kingdom, as England is.
