- Technical Assistance:
1. The December activity plans remained posted in the facility and staff reported that they did not know what the plans are for January. 2. Behavior guidance should promptly address unwanted behaviors such as, pushing and hitting among children. A review of rules and expectations may be helpful during this time of change in staffing. 3. Providing children with a demonstration, in addition to verbal instructions, to a new activity may help reduce frustrations. 4. Installing a door bell may be helpful for staff to hear when parents are at the door. Knocks at the door often went unheard by staff due to the noise level inside. Staff should be opening the exterior doors and identifying individuals before allowing them inside. Children were observed opening the doors for those knocking. 5. The storage room was in disarray with supplies strewn about the floor and shelves however, children were not observed in this area during the inspection.
Conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection. Observed 22 children + 2 direct-care staff. Ratios were in compliance. Upon arrival, the group was in the cafeteria. Children were running around and yelling. One staff person was leaning in a door way watching the group, and the other was greeting parents. Staff reported this to be a transition time and that they were preparing to go to the gym for active games. Active play included group games. Children and staff showed frustration when the instructions of a new game were not initially understood. The areas were found to be sufficiently clean and supplied with activities for the children. When asked if there were medications on-site, staff reported "No, I don't think so." When asked where the medication box was located, staff were unsure. When asked where the written injury reports were filed, staff were not sure. Required documents were not posted. Record keeping violations found. Inspection completed 4:30-5:35pm. Questions about this report may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
