Group and School Age Child Care Licensing Policy Statement
Number: P-GCC/SA-06

Some child care programs have a capacity that changes at different times, such as summers, evenings, or week-ends. If a reduction in capacity is anticipated at the time of license renewal, a condition reflecting the capacity change should be noted on the license at that time. The condition should clearly state the reduced capacity and the time period (summer, nights, week-ends) that the reduction applies. If the Department is later notified of an intent to change capacity, a condition will be placed on the license and an updated license will be provided to the program.

Administrative requirements for the program will be based on the licensed capacity at any given time. Therefore, the requirements may be different during the summer than during the school year, or on nights and week-ends.
