Infants are children who are 6 weeks up to 24 months.

Preschool children are children who are 24 months, up to the age where they are eligible to attend first grade. 

 

A provider may have up to six children who are not yet eligible for first grade in care.

For instance, if a provider has:

1 child under 24 months, may have 5 preschool age in care;

2 children under 24 months, may have 4 preschool age in care.

 

This number includes infants in care and the providerís own children.

   

 

School age children are children who are eligible to attend first grade or are older.

 

A provider may have four school age children in addition to the six preschool children in care.  A provider may have as many school age children as she wishes to make up the total of ten children.  For instance, if there are:

5 preschoolers, may have 5 school age, or 

4 preschoolers, may have 6 school age. 

 

A providerís own children through age 13 count as child care children when they are at home during child care hours.

 

 

 

A provider may have a total of 10 children in care.  No more than 6 of the children may be preschool age (of these no more than 2 may be under 24 months).

 

Any children who are being supervised  by the provider during child care hours count in the number, including: friends of providerís children who are just playing; scout troops meeting during child care hours; neighborís children who drop in, etc.
