Set staff to child ratios for age groups

This tracks how many staff members are required at specific times in each room.

Click the edit pencil to set specific staff:child ratios for age groups and choose if staff members that are qualified for a 1:13 ratio should impact the staffing requirements on the rota and occupancy. Save your changes with the tick.

Calculation for staff required

There are two calculation rounding options to help you view the most accurate staff required numbers for your needs:

  • Round staff required per age group: This option usually leads to a higher number of staff required. First it rounds up the staff required per age group then sums the staff required per age group up at the end.

  • Round total staff required at the end: This option usually leads to a lower number of staff required to save costs. First it sums up the decimal values for the staff required per age group then rounds the total staff required at the end.
