Default Trying to choose a board for my kids...

My kids both weigh 50lbs and are 48"(son) and 52"(daughter) tall. They will be sailing in 8-20mph winds. I'm not concerned about sharing a board with my kids. My wife and I both have our own boards. I'd like to get a board that works well for them in non-planing conditions, as well as transition into planing. I like the rio small for the retractable centerboard, but I fear the board may be too big for the sail size(1.0, 1.5, 2.4) they will be using. I like the idea of the kids being able to kick up the centerboard if they want to try and plane and then put it back down to get them back upwind if needed. The centerfins aren't as convenient. Would the rio small work for them? If not, what are your board suggestions?
