Staff:Child Ratios

The Washington State Department of Early Learning minimum staff:child ratios are:

Age Group Ratio
Infant (6 weeks – 11 months) 1:4
Toddler (12 – 29 months) 1:7
Preschool (30 months – 5 years) 1:10
School Age (kindergarten – 5th grade) 1:15


WSUCC provides staff:child ratios to meet the needs of each classroom. Our classrooms generally have more teachers than the state minimum requirements.
