ALBNAY – The New York State Department of Health has approved an increase in group size for childcare centers around the state.
The news was announced late last week that the department will increase group size to 15 children per room where age appropriate.
Supporters of the change say it will help ensure childcare availability across the State.
The previous recommendation was a maximum group size of 10.
The initial changes to group sizes for childcare and day camp programs came as the state continues its fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
