Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on August 30, 2016. Staff reported 14 children are currently enrolled in the program. At the time of the inspection, 13 children were present with 2 staff members. The children were observed during the lunch meal. After lunch the children were observed during outdoor play. The children were interacting with one another and appeared to enjoy their play time. Dismissal procedures were observed at the end of the program day. A sample of 3 children's records was reviewed. Prescribed medications and written authorizations were reviewed for 3 children. Documentation of the center's practiced emergency drills, the annual fire and health inspections, partial staff records (2) and notice of liability insurance coverage was reviewed. The first aid kit was observed. Age-appropriate materials were available in the center for the children's use. Findings of the inspection were reviewed with Center Staff at exit.
