Conducted an unannounced renewal inspection. Observed 29 children + 7 direct-care staff. The Director, Assistant Director, and Cook were also on-site and assisting in classrooms as needed. Ratios and supervision were in compliance, and all classrooms had a qualified Lead Teacher present. Staff were actively engaged with the children and activities in all classes. Children were observed in a variety of activities to include: story time, creative play, blocks, painting, washing hands, eating lunch, and taking naps. The infants were having play time on the floor, taking naps, being held and fed. The center was found to be clean and sufficiently supplied with toys and equipment for the children however, hazards found. Preparations were underway to open the last empty classroom later this week. The kitchen remains clean and in very good order. Lunch served: tomato soup, deli turkey, cheese, wheat bread, peaches, and milk. Staffing training requirements met. No medications reported to be on-site. Emergency preparedness in compliance. Record keeping violations found. Inspection completed 10:10am-1:30pm. Questions about this inspection may be directed to email@example.com ** 13 of the 16 violations which were cited 8/27/15 and were the basis of the subsequent Provisional License have been corrected. Overall compliance has improved, and most of the current violations are of low-moderate risk. Staff interviewed reported improved curriculum, support, communication, and oversight of the center during the provisional period. Classes have been divided by appropriate age groups, and are no longer combined. There was no evidence of children being moved to maintain ratios, or without required assessments. Compliance with the Intensive Plan of Correction was found.
