Two violations in the areas of physical plant and staffing and supervision are identified on the violation notice and were discussed with the center director during the exit interview.

Evidence: 1. During nap time in the pre-k classroom there were 21 children, ages 3-5 years old, napping with 1 staff present. The number and ages of the children require two staff to be present. 2. The center director confirmed that the number and ages of children in the room require two staff to be present. Plan of Correction: The center responded with the following: The classroom was in ratio all day, unfortunately, at rest time the teacher received another student and did not make management aware.
