Q. How big are your classes and teacher-to-child ratios?
A. Class sizes and ratios are going to rise and fall as children come and go. However, we will never go above these ratios and will start calling in staff before we hit them: Infants – capacity 12, ratio 1 to 5 or 2 to 12. Toddlers – capacity 14, ratio 1 to 7. Preschoolers – capacity 24, ratio 1 to 12. School age – capacity 24, ratio 1 to 18.
Q. Do you pick up at my school?
A. It depends on where your children go to school. The Medina Sweet Kiddles buses are currently serving the following schools: Heritage, Northrop, Garfield, Ella Canavan, St. Francis and Sidney Fenn. Our route changes depending on the children currently in our care so please check-in with us if your school is not on this list.
Q. What about outdoor play?
A. We have an awesome outdoor playground where we play every day that the weather permits. When the weather doesn’t permit, we have gross-motor play indoors – things like gymnastics, dancing, jumping or playing with hula hoops.
Q. Do you care for special needs children?
A. We do, depending on your specific needs. Please contact us so we can set up a time to meet you and understand the specifics of your situation.
A. Yup, we run them in the summer. We just published our summer camp schedule. The beauty of our summer camps is that you pick only the days you want to attend.
