Child-To-Staff Ratios

Low child-to-staff ratios are integral to a quality program. The Center is committed to providing ratios that exceed state and accreditation standards. The Center currently maintains the following Child-to-Staff ratios:

Classroom Center Ratio State Ratio Accreditation Ratio
Toddler 3 to 1 5 to 1 4 to 1
Early Preschool 4 to 1 6 to 1 6 to 1
Preschool 5 to 1 12 to 1 9 to 1
Kindergarten 6 to 1 15 to 1 10 to 1

There are times during the year, especially during Winterim and once the university students are gone in mid-May to the end of our school year where it is very difficult to continue to maintain the stated Center ratios due to lack of students who are able to stay and work. During this time, we continue to strive towards these ratios, but commit to continue to meet accreditation ratio standards.
