What are the requirements for outdoor recreation areas?

(1) If you care for children under the age of twelve you must provide a safe and securely fenced or department-approved, enclosed outdoor recreation area appropriate to a child's age and developmental level. The recreation area must:
(a) Prevent the child's access to roadways and other dangers;
(b) Protect the play area from unauthorized exit or entry. Any fence or enclosure must be designed to discourage climbing; and
(c) Directly adjoin the indoor premises or be reachable by a safe route.
(2) If you are a group receiving center or an emergency respite center you must have an outside recreation area that is suitable for the number of children you are serving. If not all of the children are using the outdoor recreation area at the same time, you may reduce the size to the number of children normally using the area at one time.
(3) If you are licensed as a secure CRC, you must maintain a recreational area within the secure facility or on the property of the facility that can support the youth's daily activity. A nonscalable fence must surround the recreational area.
