how many kids, teachers & assistants are in your DC's preK4 class> (private school)

Went to the orientation yesterday , DD's class has 22 kids, 1 teacher and 1 assistant. I feel like that's too many kids and not enough adults ...

I went to my DD's pre-k orientation yesterday too! Same ratio - 22 kids (16 full-day, 6 mornings only) with 1 teacher and 1 assistant.

Re: how many kids, teachers & assistants are in your DC's preK4 class> (private school)

I worked in a preschool for two years. I am pretty sure that they told us that the ratio was 10:1 for the four year old program and 8:1 for the 3 year old program. My girls are going o be 3 in NOv. they have 12 kids in their class and there are 3 adults.

I teach in an elementary school and the preschool teacher told me the most she can get is 18 or 20 (I can't remember.. It is her and a teacher's assistant in the class.

DD's pre-K class last year was 13 students. Not all were there full day, some went home at noon. She had 1 teacher and 1 assistant. There were 2 classes of that same set-up.

My DD's class has 28 students, one teacher and two assistants. Chat Icon

My older DD had the exact same number when she was in PreK and I had my reservations, but the teacher (she actually co-wrote the PreK curriculum for the whole Diocese of Brooklyn) and the class are FABULOUS! I don't know how she does it...they learn so much, have so much fun and yet you could hear a pin drop in that classroom!

23 students
1 teacher
1 assistant

Ages are 3-5
Private

But I think any one given day its about 15 or so because of half day and alternate day kids.

Re: how many kids, teachers & assistants are in your DC's preK4 class> (private school)

I just did a google search for NYS center based childcare and early childhood education. From what I see, there shouldn't be any classes over 20 kids. Childcare facility should be a 1:8 ratio and and early childhood facility should be 1:10 ratio, and a headstart was 1:7 ratio.

eta: that is for four year old programs.
