An unannounced Renewal inspection was conducted this date. A total of 10 children (28pts) were present with Provider, 1 Assistant and 1 Volunteer. Walk through of the provider's home was completed. Observation of all cribs on site was made and at this time only 2 cribs out of 5 cribs are in use. When the Inspector arrived this morning the children were in two groups. The older group were busy playing and interacting with each other and the younger children were crawling and playing with staff and toys. A nice transition was observed to circle time, singing and interacting along with a muscial CD. The children were familiar with the routine and the words of the songs. Hand washing and food preparation was observed prior to lunch. Lunch today was macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets, broccoli and grapes. Staff observed sitting closely to one infant while feeding them. A total of 5 children's records, all staff, one volunteer and household member records were reviewed today. No medications on site today, no identified food allergies or special needs at this time. Previous violations were reviewed from the February inspection, and corrective actions were verified. This inspection began at approximately 9:40am and ended at 11:50am. Thank you for your cooperation today. Please email me at: with any questions.
