A renewal inspection was initiated on 9/3/21 and concluded on 9/23/21. The administrator was contacted by telephone and a remote inspection was conducted. There were eighteen children present with four staff supervising and the Director observing. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, physical plant, staffing and supervision, programming, medication, special care and emergencies and nutrition. A total of two child records, four staff records, and two officer records were reviewed.

Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program.
