Description: #Playground-safety guidelines for child care facilities should include ensuring that playground equipment is age-appropriate, regularly inspected for any hazards or damages, and properly maintained. This helps minimize any potential risks or accidents that children may encounter while playing on the playground. #Water-safety guidelines for child care facilities should prioritize the supervision of children near any water sources, such as swimming pools, splash pads, or water play areas. Encouraging the use of life jackets or floatation devices, providing swimming lessons for children, and implementing clear rules and boundaries around water activities are essential to prevent any potential water-related accidents or incidents. This resource, developed by #MSDE, is a document for #teachers and #providers to use to ensure that their facilities are suitable for children while maintaining #safety standards.
