How many adults do you think should be in a preschool class room of ten 4-5 yr. olds?
In my son's room he has about 12 kids ranging in age from 3 - 5. It is a preschool and kindergarten class in a private school. My son's birthday is in October and is past the cut off point for being in kindergarten. So if we were to do public school, at five, he would still not be allowed to enter kindergarten. For 12 kids there are two and sometimes three certified teachers in the room at any given time depending on the lessons and things going on at the time. I wanted a small setting where my child could get the individual quality attention at his level and to meet his specific developmental needs. Compared to I had the opportunity to enroll him in a similar public program, ages 3 - 5, that has 24 kids, one certified teacher, and one teaching assistant.
