Why staff/child ratios matter in child care

October 24 2014

When it is time to place your child in child care, one of the things you should look for while selecting a program is the ratioof staff members to children. This is important for a variety of reasons. A classroom with many children needs many staff members to ensure each child is properly supervised. Children deserve individual attention and this is easier to achieve when there is an adequate number of staff. If a child is having difficulty understanding a particular lesson, a staff member is more likely to observe the issue quicker in a small group and offer timely assistance. 

Children often feel more comfortable asking questions and asking for help when in a small group, as opposed to a classroom full of children with only one or two adults. Personalized attention ensures children fully understand the subject matter and are not left behind. Each child progresses at an individual pace, so individual attention is necessary. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies, your child will participate in small group instruction and will grow and flourish.
