Comments:
An unannounced Subsidy Health and Safety Inspection (SHSI) was conducted on May 14, 2019 from approximately 1:10 pm until 6:00 pm. Upon entrance there were 26 children and 4 staff present with children. The record review sample consisted of 6 children's records and 3 staff records. Children were observed during their rest period, eating snack and playing games. A licensing inspection was conducted on the same date as the SHSI supplemental inspection; the two inspections combined cover the Subsidy Health and Safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. The results of the inspection were reviewed and verified with the Site Supervisor during the exit interview. Areas of noncompliance are noted on the violation notice. If you have any questions, contact your licensing inspector at (757) 404-0568.
