Comments:
Today's visit was a renewal inspection. The inspection began at 8:50am and concluded at 1:30pm. There were eighty-eight children present with fourteen direct care staff and additional support staff were present to include the Program Director. During the inspection all seven classrooms in operation were viewed, seven out of eighty-eight staff records were reviewed, four out of one hundred thirty-six children's records were reviewed, two out of five vehicles used for transportation were viewed, end of breakfast was observed, lunch time was observed, nap time was observed, the outdoor area was viewed, three of seven medications with authorizations were viewed, and some policies and procedures were reviewed. Discussion took place regarding Program Leader qualifications and documentation. Your renewal application has been received in the licensing office, however, it has been deemed incomplete. Once the application is completed and today's inspection is complete a recommendation regarding your license can be made. Thank you for your time, please call me at 309-2051 if you have any questions.
