Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on November 30, 2018 from approximately 1:45p.m. to 3:45p.m. Nine children were in care during the inspection. Staff and children, three and four years old, were observed in one classroom with adequate staff ratios. Children and staff were observed engaging in activities to include nap time and a fire drill. Children?s equipment, learning materials, outdoor and classroom space, restrooms, and the first aid and emergency supplies were inspected. Four children?s records, five staff records, annual fire and health inspections, fire drill, shelter in place logs, daily health observation and medication administration certifications, injury reports, daily attendance, the emergency response plan, and required postings were reviewed. The center administers medications but no children are currently taking medications. The Director and Business Manger were available for interview and the inspection and were 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. There were five citations for violations of the Standards. See the violation notice on the Department?s public web site for violations of the Standards.
