Discussed with the Director that the playground equipment on the big playground is still off limits to the children as it has not been repaired yet.

An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today from 9:00am to 1:00pm with the Director and Co-Director. There were 28 children in care, ranging from two years to five years of age, supervised by seven staff. The children were observed having free play in centers, cleaning up for circle time, having circle time, singing and dancing, and having sensory play with shaving cream. Five children?s records, five staff records, and three board member's records were reviewed. The Center has eight staff with current certification in CPR and First Aid, and seven staff trained in Daily Health Observation Training. Three medications and authorization forms were reviewed and the center has one staff current in Medication Administration Training (MAT). The attendance and emergency drill log were reviewed and were in compliance. The first aid kit was observed and was in compliance.

The Center's hours of operation are 6:00am to 7:00pm but the Director's hours are 7:00am-4:00pm or 8:00am-5:00pm.
