What are the requirements for indoor recreation areas?

(1) You must provide indoor recreational areas appropriate to children's age and developmental levels.
(2) If you provide group care to more than 12 children you must have at least one separate indoor recreation area with a size and location that is suitable for recreational and informal educational activities. Depending on the number and age range of children served, you must provide:
(a) Adequate area for child play; and
(b) Sufficient space to house a developmentally appropriate program.
(3) If you care for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities you must provide them with a room for physical and occupational therapy, if a physician prescribes these services. The room must be adequate for storing equipment used during therapy sessions. If you do not have a room for physical and occupational therapy, you must arrange for these therapies outside of your facilities.
(4) If you operate a group care program that serves medically fragile children younger than age six, you must follow these additional room requirements:
(a) If you care for infants, and are licensed to care for more than twelve children you must provide separate safe play areas for children less than one year or children not walking. The department must approve the rooms or areas;
