Classroom Ratios

Classroom Ratios

The staff-child ratio is defined as the number of children who are cared for by one staff member.  For example, if an infant room has a ratio of 1:6, there could be six infants cared for by one adult staff member. Lower staff to child ratios allow a higher quality care because the teachers have more time to develop relationships with children, work with them one on one and are able to meet the child’s individual needs.
