L.A. answers from Austin on February 27, 2009
It depends on the type of childcare Facility
Here are the standards for Texas.
K.A. answers from Austin on February 28, 2009
The state of Texas Minimum standards are:
1 to 20 for 4 year olds
1 to 17 for 3 year olds
The National Association for the Education of Young Children recommends 1 to 10 for four year olds and 1 to 8 for three year olds. You can go to the NAEYC website to find preschools that are accredited by NAEYC. But there are also a lot of schools that aren't accredited but still have NAEYC ratios.
M.M. answers from Austin on February 28, 2009
Any decent school will keep it below ration, look for that when considering. I was a pre-k teacher years ago and they had a 15 kid max and it could still get a little crazy.
