CHILD-STAFF RATIO

The department of Social services prescribe the following ratios:

  • 1 – 18 months – 1:6
  • 18 m – 3 years – 1:12
  • 3 – 4 years – 1:20
  • 5 – 6 years – 1:30

Our ratio is less. We try to keep a 1:5 ratio at the baby school even for 18 m – 2 years.

The ratio for the older groups are also less than the prescribed ratios.
