RULE §746.1205What does Licensing mean by "supervise children at all times"?

The caregiver must intervene when necessary to ensure children's safety. In deciding how closely to supervise children, the caregiver must take into account:

  (1) Ages of the children;

  (2) Individual differences and abilities;

  (3) Indoor and outdoor layout of the child-care center; and

  (4) Neighborhood circumstances, hazards, and risks.
