Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on September 17, 2018 from approximately 12:45p.m. to 3:30p.m. to review supplemental health and safety requirements. Seventeen children were in care during the inspection. Staff and children were observed engaging in activities to include transition to lunch, hand washing, eating lunch and nap time. The children, infant to four years old, were observed in three classrooms with adequate staff ratios. Children?s equipment, learning materials, outdoor and classroom space, bathrooms and the center?s first aid, emergency supplies were inspected. Five children?s records, five staff records, annual fire and health inspections, fire drill, shelter in place and lock down logs, daily attendance and required postings were reviewed. The center does not provide transportation or administer medication and there were no injury reports to review. The Director was available for interview and inspection and was present at the exit interview at which time inspection findings were reviewed and an Acknowledgement of Inspection form was signed and left with the licensee. A licensing inspection was also conducted this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection requirements and are identified on the violation notice.
