Description: Based on direct observations, the Center failed to ensure the playground was free of tripping hazards. Evidence: The LI observed a climbing component of the equipment lying on the ground in a pile. The chains were on the ground near other components. The climbing component was anchored under ground but the top support was off of the structure. Peeling paint was observed from the wood support posts.

Evidence: At 9:15am, the LI observed 37 children in care, two staff were present with the children in the gym. Based on the mixed age group with a four-year old child in care, the ratio was 1 staff to every 10 children. At 9:45am, two additional staff arrived and the children were divided into 2 separate groups.

Plan of Correction: Back up staff were on their way, due to higher than expected numbers. In the future, we will have opening staff communicate (to the Director) the need for support staff before we risk being out of ratio, immediate (correction date).
