Adult:Child Ratios

The CECE constantly maintains adult child ratios that meet or exceed the standards mandated by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. At maximum, our ratios are:

Teacher:Child Ratios

1:5 = Toddler Classroom (Ages 12 months – 2 ½ years)
1:10 = Preschool I Classroom (Ages 2 ½ - 4 years)
1:12 = Preschool II Classroom (Ages 3 ½ - 6 years)
1:16 = Summer School Age Classroom (Ages 6 – 10 years)

Because our school serves as a practicum and observation site for ESU students, we often have student teachers and observation students in our classrooms. This helps us to maintain an even lower adult child ratio than listed above!

All staff (including all practicum students, student teachers, and other volunteers) are required to submit to a KBI background check, provide documentation of a recent physical and a negative TB skin test.
