EYFS staff: child ratios – DfE approved qualifications list
The Department for Education has updated the lists of qualifications that meet the DfE criteria for counting in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework staff:child ratios.
Early years providers can use these early years qualifications lists to:
- check if an individual’s qualification meets the approved ‘full and relevant’ criteria for early years qualifications
- confirm if an individual counts in the staff:child ratios set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework
You should use these lists alongside the detailed guidance on checking early years qualifications
