Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on Friday, January 11, 2019 from 9:45 AM until 3:10 PM to review supplemental health and safety requirements. The following ratios were observed with a total of 71 children present during the inspection:
Infants - 12 children with 3 staff

Threes (Preschool) - 12 children with 2 staff
Fours & Fives (Pre-K) - 14 children with 2 staff

The children and staff were engaged in a variety of activities while the licensing inspector was on the premises. Children were observed playing outside, learning about transportation, creating silly stories using the letter ?Kk?, building with blocks, playing with toys, being held and rocked, eating lunch and resting at nap time. Children were also observed having their diapers changed, taking bathroom breaks and washing their hands. Lunch consisted of turkey sandwiches, celery and carrots, pears and milk. All areas of the center including classrooms, hallways, kitchen, bathrooms and outdoor play area were inspected. The center was equipped with toys and supplies and items were available to the children. Seven children's and seven staff records were reviewed.

A licensing inspection was conducted on the same date as the SHSI supplemental inspection; 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 and are identified on the violation notice.

If you have any questions about this inspection, please contact the Licensing Inspector, Lynn Powers at (804) 662-9790.
