Staff Ratios

Little Pandas Preschool is certified to care for 12 children at any given time, and Panda Babies is certified for 16. Some children are enrolled full time and others part time. This means that the enrollment varies from day to day and the ratios change accordingly. Employees are scheduled to work based on the ratios required by the Child Care Division. Many days we exceed the staff requirements in order to provide the best care possible for your child. You will find that there is always someone available when an extra hand is needed or to play with and comfort a child. The staff to child ratios set by the Child Care Division are as follows:

1:10 all children are 24 months+
1:8 1 child under 24 months
1:7 2 children under 24 months
1:6 3 children under 24 months
1:4 4 children under 24 months

Hours: 7:30-5:30 Monday through Friday
