    Are programs serving toddlers and preschool children required to have separate playgrounds?  At one point, this was required but I'm not sure it still applies.

    Hi Diane, 

    I have worked in both corporate and privately-owned daycares. At the large, corporate daycare, we had a separate toddler playground and a larger more advanced playground for preschoolers and kindergartners. At the privately-owned daycare/church daycare, toddlers and preschoolers shared the playground at different times during the day. I am not sure if there is a set law/rule pertaining to this regulation. You may want to check out DCFS for rules pertaining to this.
