A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 7/10/19 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on 7/10/19. There were 42 children present in four groupings with eight staff directly supervising and additional administrative staff and volunteers present to assist if needed. Five newly enrolled children's records were reviewed and five staff records were reviewed. Children and staff records from the previous inspection were reviewed for correction of previous violations and were found to be corrected. There were no medications at the center. The inspector arrived at the center at 12:30 pm and departed at 5:00 pm. The children were observed finishing lunch and during nap. All infant activities were also observed. 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.
