At Famly we understand the importance of sticking to the required staff ratios. This is why you have the ability to set room and age group staff ratios.
You can enter your room ratios from your room settings. We suggest using room ratios if you have rooms that must stick to a certain ratio, these are rooms that do not have mixed ages. If you have mixed age group rooms, do not enter the ratio of those rooms in the room settings. Simply leave them blank.
Age Group Ratios (mixed-age rooms)
These should be used if you have mixed age groups in a single room. You can enter Age Group ratios by going into your Setup, into Children and clicking on Age groups. Here you will enter the staff ratios for the specific age groups.
When viewing Room Planning by room:
If the staff ratio is set in the room settings, Famly will use that staff ratio for the required staff calculation (even if you have set a staff ratio on your age groups).
If you haven't set a staff ratio in your room settings, then Famly will find the age-groups for the children in the room on the given day and then use that to calculate the combined required staff for the room.
When viewing Room Planning by age group:
When viewing by age group Famly will only ever use the staff ratio that's assigned to each age group.
