A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on October 31, 2029 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. The on-site inspection was from 12:30 p.m. to 3:55 p.m. On this date, there were five children present and in the care of two staff members. There were 16 children enrolled in the center. Four staff members' records and five children's records were reviewed and observations were made in both classrooms. Four staff members and three children were interviewed. There was no medication on-site or being administered.
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. A violation was found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection and is identified on the violation notice.

2. The director verified that she had not yet written that policy.
Plan of Correction: A policy regarding care by consistent staff will be written and included in the parent and staff handbooks.
