An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 from approximately 11:20 AM until 2:00 PM to determine the provider's compliance with licensing standards. In attendance were three non-resident children. The children were being supervised by one caregiver during the inspection. There was a total of six points based on the children?s ages. The children were observed playing outside, playing with blocks and a ball maze, washing their hands, eating lunch and resting at nap time. Lunch consisted of chicken nuggets, bread, peas, peaches and milk. The caregiver was observed engaging the children in conversation and providing assistance when needed. A walk through of the home was conducted with the provider. The child care areas were filled with supplies and toys for the children. During the inspection, the licensing inspector reviewed the following: emergency supplies including first aid kit, battery operated weather radio, emergency plan, emergency drill logs, pet dogs? rabies records, required postings, menu, caregiver's training hours and daily attendance.
