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.The EYFS has been revised and the updated version will be implemented from 1 September 2014. Qualifications at level 3 and above that meet the early years educator criteria will be considered full and relevant.
To count in the ratios at level 3, staff holding an early years educator qualification must have achieved GCSEs in English and maths at grade C or above.
