Class Size and Placement

Class size (child/teacher ratio) is determined by the child’s age, room size and required square footage recommended by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Class placement is a careful and thoughtful process. Individual needs, special needs, boy/girl ratio and the age of each child is considered. The Children’s Circle staff members also make observations and recommendations for class placement.
