The licensing inspector conducted a mandated announced initial inspection from 10:00 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. This is a new child day center and no children were in care. The two rooms and bathrooms were inspected as well as the outside areas. This center used to be a religious-exempt facility. The center has plenty of age-appropriate toys and supplies that were in place to begin operation. Emergency supplies were inspected and in order. The center has a playground across the street from the church that is in the process of being cleaned and mulch refurbished. The center will not use the playground equipment until the licensing inspector has inspected it. The center has a grassy area to be used for outdoor play and also a parking lot for riding toys to be used until the playground is brought up to standards.
