Lack of appropriate space will limit the ability of your Sunday School to grow. A growing church will need to continually provide additional space to stay ahead of the need.
Dual Sunday Schools can provide much more efficient use of space and allow ministry to more people.
Beyond the basic needs for adequate square footage, consider also the quality of space provided: cleanliness and repair, lighting, furnishings, teaching aids (bulletin boards and marker boards, overhead projectors, etc.), temperature, access, convenience to restrooms and preschool areas, etc.
