An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on August 23, 2018, between the hours of approximately 10:35 a.m. and 3:05 p.m. Twenty-seven (27) children were enrolled and twenty-five (25) children were in the care of seven staff members, in five classrooms, during the on site inspection. One additional staff member was present and assisted, as needed. Five children's records and five staff records were reviewed and/or updated. One child's medication, two children's topical ointments and authorization forms were reviewed. Posted information (license, licensing inspection documentation, emergency evacuation diagram/plan, emergency telephone numbers, menu and classroom schedules), safety equipment (first aid kit, flashlight and radio) and available documents (emergency evacuation and shelter-in-place drill records, daily infant forms, attendance records, injury reports and one local agency inspection report) were reviewed/discussed. The daily schedules accurately reflected the activities provided. Lunch and snack were provided by the children's parents and breakfast was provided by the facility. Program observation was completed. Activities observed on this date included: outdoor play; indoor play with classroom materials/toys; stories; diapering, restroom and handwashing procedures; lunch; infant care (feeding, napping and play); naptime and pick-up/departure of children.
