I don't think I would, not with only one adult. Especially if there are other younger (even if they are older than your child) children who will also need the adult's attention. In our nursery at church, for 0-6 month babies, I believe the ratio is one adult to two kids. The ratio gets a bit larger when dealing with older kids, but I would assume that at least one other adult should be there to help take care of children. I would not leave ANY of my kids in a room with just one adult. My kids are all 6 and under. There are some days that I can't handle them on my own, so I'd never leave them with just one person.
