An announced focused visit was conducted on 12/11/2018 to review new playground equipment installed on the community playground. Consultation was provided regarding the larger swing set, the larger slide, and circular and climbing stand-alone structures to the far right of the playground. These items are inappropriate for the age of the children in care based on the manufacture label for the acceptable age range. Staff will be trained on the use of the new, acceptable equipment items that can be used by the children in care. The center's playground safety procedures will be updated and staff review of the updates will be documented.
