Today we discussed background checks, unlocked chemicals, medication authorizations and outlet covers.
An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted from 9am through 11:30am. There were 14 children in care ages 3 - 5 years old with two teaching staff. Children were observed in outside play and transitions. Classrooms were reviewed as well as children and staff records. Additionally, required postings, fire and health inspections, medication and first aid kit and other emergency equipment were reviewed. Violations regarding unlocked chemicals, missing outlet covers, emergency drills and documentation and background were cited and appear on the violation notice.
