My 6 month old son attends an in-home daycare. I trust the daycare provider and I am happy with her service; however, I'm becoming concerned with the adult-to-child ratio. In addition to my son, there are five 1-2 year olds; and another 1 1/2 year old is starting tomorrow; and frequently she has her 1 year old grandson. That's 8 children under the age of 2. Is this too many? Sidebar: I myself am a teacher and know the benefits of a smaller class size with regards to one-on-one attention. But I'm unfamiliar with the daycare system and don't know the policies of other childcare centers. Any advice/thoughts/feedback would be greatly appreciated.
