Dear Child Care Provider,
We want to ensure you are informed on the most up-to-date information that will affect your child care center. Broward County Emergency Order 20-25 was just released and it eliminates the requirement that children seventeen (17) and under be separated into independent groups of no more than ten (10) children.
This means that individual classroom capacity is based on the square footage of your classrooms. Please be advised that if the incidence of COVID-19 begins to grow, the previous order could be re-instated.
While this order may allow for additional children in the classroom, please remember COVID-19 is still with us. Please continue to follow all CDC recommendations and report any exposure or positive cases to the Department of Health. We trust that each of you will develop plans that continue to protect your children, your staff and your community.
If you have any questions about classroom capacity, please contact Broward County Child Care Licensing at 954-357-4800.
Thank you for you all that you do for our families and children in Broward County. Have a great weekend!
