Comments:
The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection, at which play groups, group time, stories, music time, activities, personal hygiene, lunch time, and rest time were observed. Children were observed; and staff and children files and other documentation were reviewed. Seventy (70) children, ages 2 months to 12 years, were found to be in care with 12 staff, kitchen staff, and administrative staff. Previous violations were reviewed, and had been corrected. Please contact me if you need further assistance. Thank you for your cooperation. This inspection began at 8:40 am and concluded at 12:50 pm.

Both areas of non-compliance pose a hazard to the children.

Plan of Correction: Replacement mats have already been requested, and we will use other mats that are available to replace the torn mats until the replacements arrive. The chairs will be checked by maintenance and the rust covered if possible, or the chairs will be replaced.
