Yellow indicates that your licensed number of Under 2 children has been exceeded.
Pink indicates that your total licensed number children has been exceeded.
White indicates that your staff/child ratio is as per MoE requirement for that period.
Orange indicates that you have no registered staff on duty for that period. This also indicates that there are no staff on duty who can be considered as Person Responsible. Only Teachers with Primary Qualifications may not act as person responsible.

To calculate teacher ratios: Infocare divides each day into 15-minute segments. For each segment the number of Under 2 children is counted, and the required staff is calculated from the table shown at the bottom of this document. This process is repeated for the Over 2 children and these two figures are combined.
20 Under 2’s = 4 teachers + 6 Over 2’s =1 teacher = 5 teachers required.
If you have only 1 to 3 children of mixed ages,the Ministry requires you to have one teacher on duty. This will assist at the beginning and at the end of each day when the children arrive or are being collected.
