In addition to the requirements of sections 245G.01 to 245G.17, a license holder that offers supervision of a child of a client is subject to the requirements of this section. A license holder providing room and board for a client and the client's child must have an appropriate facility license from the Department of Health.
"Supervision of a child" means a caregiver is within sight or hearing of an infant, toddler, or preschooler at all times so that the caregiver can intervene to protect the child's health and safety. For a school-age child it means a caregiver is available to help and care for the child to protect the child's health and safety.
A license holder must meet the following requirements:
(1) have a policy and schedule delineating the times and circumstances when the license holder is responsible for supervision of a child in the program and when the child's parents are responsible for supervision of a child. The policy must explain how the program will communicate its policy about supervision of a child responsibility to the parent; and
(2) have written procedures addressing the actions a staff member must take if a child is neglected or abused, including while the child is under the supervision of the child's parent.
During the times the license holder is responsible for the supervision of a child, the license holder must meet the following standards:
(1) child and adult ratios in Minnesota Rules, part 9502.0367;
(2) day care training in section 245A.50;
(3) behavior guidance in Minnesota Rules, part 9502.0395;
(4) activities and equipment in Minnesota Rules, part 9502.0415;
(5) physical environment in Minnesota Rules, part 9502.0425; and
(6) water, food, and nutrition in Minnesota Rules, part 9502.0445, unless the license holder has a license from the Department of Health.
