Twenty-five to thirty square feet of floor space per person should be provided in each children's department. If not, participation in activities will be limited.
If this is impossible, infants should have twenty square feet; toddlers - 15; children's classes -8.
If there are too many children in your room, the class may need to be divided. When a group has grown to occupy 70% of its available space, growth strangulation occurs. The room size actually deters further growth. Since we are working toward the growth of our Sunday Schools, children's classes should be kept at a size where maximum teaching/learning can transpire and numerical growth can be stimulated.
Too much furniture or equipment may give the children a fenced-in feeling which is counter productive to learning.
