An exit meeting was completed by the licensing inspector with the center's director to review today's inspection findings.
The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection on Monday, December 18, 2017 from 2:30 pm to 5:15 pm to determine the center's compliance with licensing standards. During this inspection, the center's director was present and assisted the licensing inspector throughout this inspection. The census for today's inspection consisted of 12 school-aged children. The licensing inspector was notified by staff that the children are out of school for holiday break and will be participating in a variety of themes at the center. The center's theme for today was Elf day. The staff to child ratios were deemed in compliance with licensing standards. The licensing inspector completed a formal observation of the children in their classroom setting in which the children were observed participating in a 10 minute reading session and completing an elf project. The licensing inspector also completed observations of parent pick ups while at the center. The staff were observed by the licensing inspector providing age appropriate supervision and addressing the children's overall needs. The inspector interacted with staff and the children when appropriate. The classroom were equipped with age appropriate toys, and supplies. The children's snack today consisted of a cupcake, gold fish crackers, and milk. During this inspection, the required postings were reviewed and determined to be in compliance. The following information was reviewed: daily attendance, emergency supplies, menu, fire and shelter-in-place drills, liability insurance policy, and children's allergies. Medication is being administered; medications, and written authorizations were reviewed for the center's compliance. There were four children?s records and two staff's records reviewed during this inspection. There are multiple staff with current MAT certification and Daily Health Observation training on site.
