A dangling and accessible telephone cord was observed in the preschool classroom. This is an entanglement hazard. 2. Loose plastic garbage and grocery bags were observed in three unlocked cabinet drawers in the preschool classroom. These drawers are part of the diaper changing area and are accessible to children. Plastic bags are a suffocation hazard. Plan of Correction: We will ensure that our classrooms are maintained in a safe environment and all staff will be retrained in this matter. We will ensure that all dangling cords are mounted for safety and all trash bags are locked away out of reach of children. The cord and trash bags were moved immediately during inspection.
