An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed as a part of the probation of the license. The probation was effective for 12 months beginning July 2016. There were 44 children present in three groupings with five staff directly supervising and two to three additional administrative staff present. Five children's records and three staff records were reviewed. One emergency medication was observed. The inspector arrived at the center at 12:15 pm and departed at 4:15 pm. The children were observed during nap (quiet time for school-agers), during afternoon snack, during group games, and during free play time in the classrooms. There was discussion with the director about the following: new background check requirements, subsidy requirements, the upcoming renewal inspection which is the next inspection (items to be reviewed at that inspection), outside the building of the exit from the toddler room (items that may be a hazard to effective evacuation).
