The childcare center my son goes to is a 6 to 1 ratio for the 18 month old classes. It go up to 8 to 1 when they move up to the Level II classes which is still a very low ratio. This is the only school I have seen with such a low ratio. The school is Bent Tree Child Development Center and they have a great toddler program. They are located off Addison Road near Trinity Mills and the Tollway. Phone # is ###-###-####. I hope this helps. Most daycares crame as many kids as the state allows in a classroom. I feel this is just plain wrong and remember the state ratios are minimum standards!
