Staff/Child Ratios

The Center employs the number of child care staff members needed to meet staff/child ratios for the Center’s license capacity. Child care staff members shall be assigned to a group of children and shall have regularly assigned working hours to give continuity of care and supervision to the children. Below are listed the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services child care licensing staff to child ratios and small group sizes for each group. However, the ratios we follow will often be lower than State licensing ratios.
