Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for staff records, background checks and posting information near the entrance to the licensed program. The risk assessments for violations were provided.

We reviewed the requirement of having a qualified lead supervisor with each grouping during implementation of the care and activities such as in the gym. Also, we talked about emergency drill practice requirements.

Comments:
3/6/2020 - The inspection report was amended as a result of a first step review.

Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 11:49 AM to 4:50 PM. Today, five preschool age children were present with five staff. It was reported that as many as nine children attended this morning, including school age. Up to seven children attended during the afternoon, ages toddler through school age, with four to five staff. I viewed program activities, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, equipment, daily routines, posted information, insurance, lunch/snacks, agency inspection reports, implementation of procedures for accounting for children's whereabouts, emergency supplies and drill records, injury records, five records for children, seven records for staff, staff qualifications, staff training, indoor and outdoor areas. The toddlers now have a separate playground area at the fenced playground. We talked about having components of the large playground structure off limits when the mulched area is frozen. A locking system is in use at the gate to the swimming pool area. Today, the children enjoyed a variety of age appropriate toys and materials. Active play opportunities were offered in the downstairs gym. Transitions were appropriately supervised. The staff were observed providing frequent interactions with the children.

Let me know if you need any assistance. 540/430-9259
