Q: Is there an easy guide detailing the level of play and care qualifications my staff would need in our childcare setting?


Under the national minimum standards at least 50% of the non supervisory staff hold a qualification at least at level to which is appropriate to the post and at least half have a qualification at level 3, if you are registered for full day care, at least 80% of the non-supervisory staff holds at least a level 2 qualification with a minimum of 50% of staff holding a level 3 qualification.


It is worth remembering that in order to maintain this level of qualification where staff are rotated then the number of suitably qualified staff should be higher. For more information about the range of qualification that are appropriate, consult the National Minimum Standards for Regulated Childcare at www.cssiw.org
