Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on September 16, 2019 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. The inspection was initiated at 10:30 am and concluded at 1:45 pm. Upon the inspector arrival children were outside on the playground playing with trucks, tool bench, balls and in the playhouse. The playground had sun umbrellas set up to provide shady areas. Staff were observed positioned at different points on the playground with supervision of all children. Upon returning to the classrooms, children washed their hands. Observations were conducted in each classroom with children playing with block, dolls and puzzles. Children in the three year old class completed a counting worksheet and listened to a story. Lunch was also observed. Children provided their own meals which were labeled with names and today's date. All areas of the facility to include classrooms, bathrooms, hallways, and playground area were inspected. Classrooms have age and stage appropriate materials and supplies. The facility had the license, last inspection notice, emergency numbers, emergency evacuation procedures/maps, daily schedule and various parent information posted. The first aid kit and the non-medical emergency supplies were inspected and found complete.
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. The inspector interacted with staff and children in care.
