Minnesota Day Care Centers

Minnesota laws are rather conservative and have specific rules that relate to Minnesota day care centers, rules that cover not only the licensing, but also which regulate the ways in which Minnesota daycare centers are operated. These rules are extensive and cover both the qualifications of the staff, as well as extensive background checks, and of course the ratio of staff to children, as well as emergency procedures such as CPR and fire safety. For example, a class of preschoolers in Minnesota is not allowed to exceed twenty children or so, since it is believed that a number greater than this cannot sufficiently be overseen by a staff member. Specific classifications place staff members working at Minnesota day care centers at different levels of responsibility, these classifications being teacher, assistant to a teacher, or, at lower level, volunteer and aide. Different educational standards are needed for each of these groups, and must be met if the daycare center is to retain its license. Physical punishment of children is absolutely not allowed in a daycare center under Minnesota law.
