    Hi,

    I'll be starting to teach 3's and 4's this year. I'm not current on the student-teacher ratios in New York. I teach in New York, not New York city.

    If someone can help me look for this information, I would really appreciate it.

    help!

    If you are in a day care facility, your city or county should have specific guidlines of what the ratios should be. It usually varies from county to county and city to city.

    I don't know what New York is but I can tell you that where I work it is 1:10 and I think that is fairly common for this age group.

    yep, same in Illinois...

    but get this... in State Pre-K, we have 2 classes, AM and PM

    so, technically speaking... I have 40 kids! Every time I say that, people make a face. Oh no!

    On paper, records, evaluations... and all day....20 in morning and 20 in afternoon. Yeah, I got an aide.

    But when I was in CA... I worked in programs with 21 kids, but they had 1 teacher and 2 aides.. it was 1:7. I was the fourth teacher, because I was the one-on-one aide for a child with autism. But, I was not allowed to do anything, unless he was absent.
