Health Order Requirements for Childcare Providers
To ensure your business is following County guidelines, we wanted to share with the following information about what programs must do in order to comply with Public Health Orders.
Compliant with any licensing requirements and in addition to abiding by all other aspects of the State and San Mateo County Health orders, the following regulations apply to childcare establishments, summer camps, and other educational or recreational institutions or programs providing care or supervision for children of all ages:
Programs must be in stable groups of 12 or fewer children who are in the same group each day and for at least three consecutive weeks
Children cannot change from one group to another or attend more than one childcare establishment, summer camp, other educational or recreational instruction or program at the same time.
If more than one group of children is at one facility, they cannot mix with each other.
Providers, educators and other staff cannot serve more than one group of children and must remain solely with that group of children during the duration of the childcare establishment, summer camp, other educational or recreational institution or program.
