A monitoring inspection was conducted on 05/09/2022 An in-person tour of the facility was conducted in addition to a record review of a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed 5 children?s records and 7 staff records, along with any requested program records submitted by the facility to determine if required documentation was complete.

In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information.
