An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted in the Family Day Home (FDH) on June 12, 2017. There were 4 children present, the points totaled nine (9). Reportedly, eight children are currently enrolled. Three adult caregivers were providing supervision and assisting with the children's care. The children were observed by the LI during the morning program. The observed learning activities included provider-directed and child-initiated. A caregiver led the children during free play, sang several songs with the children, the children also played with music instruments, and listened to a story. Other observed activities included diapering, hand washing procedures, the lunch meal, and nap/rest time. The caregivers were engaged with the children. A sample of 2 children's and one complete caregiver record was reviewed. A discussion was held with the Provider regarding subsidy requirements and future changes in the USDA meal pattern. As reported the FDH does not administer medications. Findings of the inspection were reviewed with the Provider at the exit. The inspection was conducted from approximately 9:30am to 12:15pm.
