Preschool teacher-child ratios


I am starting to look into preschool next year for my son. What is the appropriate teacher-child ratio. Anything else I should look for when searching for a preschool?

The ratio alters if there is a qualified teacher present. I think with a teacher there it's one to thirteen, without a teacher it's one to 8.

all depends on age aswell, i think if they're under 2 yrs it's 2 to a member of staff and it climbs from there.

Correct ratio
under 2 1:3
2-3 1:4
3-5 1:8

There cannot be a member of staff working alone however so even if only 7 3-5 yr olds in a room still requires 2 members of staff the same as 16 3-5 year olds would.

(have noticed you are in the us so not 100% sure if the same as uk)
