Discussion: Organizing Classrooms or Groups

As the authors of your course text point out in Chapter 7, group sizes and ratios can have a profound impact on the quality of care in child development centers. At the same time, maintaining high-quality care is not simply a matter of instituting a low adult-child ratio. Overall group sizes and age make-ups, as well as the method used to organize these groups, also play a major role. To prepare for this Discussion, review the information about adult-child ratios and maximum group sizes proposed by the NAEYC and APHA/AAP in Table 7.1 in your course text. Then, review the adult-child ratios and maximum group sizes for state licensing of child development programs in your state ( Reflect on the following:

  • How are your state’s standards different or similar to the NAEYC and/or APHA/AAP?
  • Which set of standards do you think is preferable?
  • What do you think is the ideal adult-child ratio and maximum group size for each age range?
  • With this is mind, how would you organize classrooms or groups at your child development center—mixed-age or looping? Explain why.

With these thoughts in mind, follow the instructions below to post your response to this Discussion topic.

By Day 3 of Week 5:
Post a description of how your state’s adult-child ratio and maximum group size standards compare to NAEYC and APHA/AAP standards as well as an explanation of which set of standards you find preferable. Then, identify what you consider to be the ideal adult-child ratio and maximum group size for each age range, explaining why. Finally, describe how you would organize classrooms or groups at your child development center (mixed-age or looping), providing a rationale for your choice.
