The number of children a care giver supervises can directly affect the quality of your child's care. For this reason, every state mandates staff-to-child ratios. This ratio must be maintained for the facility or family provider's home to become, and remain, licensed. Daycare center staff ratios are based on age groups. The younger the group, the lower the ratio. However, you can't always increase the number of children allowed in a group by simply adding more and more caregivers. Generally, you could double the number of children, but not triple the number, because there's a maximum number of children allowed per group. Family daycare providers must maintain different ratios than daycare centers. The ratio varies depending on the number of the provider's own children, as well as the number of client children from the same household. Family daycares have lower ratios, mandated by state regulations, due to varying ages of the children, the lack of a commercial kitchen, and fewer bathroom facilities.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
