Records indicated that the 9th child arrived at 9:50 am, thus putting the class out of ratio. Ratio was still not met at the time of completion of the inspection at 1:00 pm.

Plan of Correction: Administration and cooperate personnel will ensure that ratios are met at all times as required. Substitutes will be used when necessary.
