An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted on February 11, 2020, from 2:50pm to 4:46pm to determine the provider's compliance with licensing standards. The children were waking up from their nap upon the inspector?s arrival, and they were later observed in free play. Today, there were six children in care (one resident child), totaling eight points, with one caregiver.
Interviews were held with the caregiver throughout the inspection. Additionally, when appropriate, the inspector interacted with the children. The caregiver was observed having positive interactions with the children. The designated areas for childcare were deemed appropriate and are equipped with age appropriate toys to meet the needs of the children. Lunch today consisted of turkey, rice, green beans, applesauce, bread, and milk, which was a change from the posted menu.
The kitchen, bathroom, and designated childcare areas were inspected during today's inspection. The inspector observed the required postings. The first aid kit and non-emergency medical supplies, fire and shelter-in-place drills were reviewed. Seven children's records and one caregiver record were reviewed.
