The inspection and substitute provider discussed the potential of the provider being placed on a 6 month provisional license due to the amount of violations.
An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today from 11:10am-1:00pm. There were 12 children (30 points) directly supervised by 3 staff. Throughout the duration of the inspection, the provider was not home. A substitute provider was present. The home, 3 staff records, 4 children?s records, 2 household member?s records, evacuation drills, emergency supplies, and policies were inspected. Children were observed watching television, having lunch, dancing and singing and playing with puzzles. Children were observed sleeping on mats and reading books quietly.
