Subchapter F. Minimum Standard Rule Revisions for Clarity and Consistency

Revisions for Clarity and Consistency

744.2001 Must caregivers provide planned activities for children in their care?

This rule has been amended to:

• clarify that written activity plans are required for programs where children are anticipated to be in care five or more consecutive hours in a day;

• expand the requirement to provide regular meal and snack time as specified in Subchapter J (Nutrition and Food Service), not just 744.2403 How often must I feed children in my care?; and

• incorporate the definitions for "child-initiated activities" and "caregiver-initiated activities" from the current definitions rule because this is the only rule that discusses these two terms.

744.2005 Must caregivers have written activity plans?

This rule has been amended to:

• be consistent with 744.2001 Must caregivers provide planned activities for children in their care?;

• delete subsection (d), which has been moved to 744.401 What items must I post at my operation at all times?; and

• delete the subsection (e) requirement to keep the written activity plans for three months, because this is already required in 744.803 How long must I keep records at my operation?.
