Licensing Inspector arrived at 9:10am and departed at 12:45pm to conduct a Subsidy Health and Safety Inspection. At the time of the tour, there were 39 children, ages three months old through five years old. Children were observed eating lunch, during rest period, and participating in various classroom activities. The sample size was five children and six staff.
Standard #: VENDSUB-000-005-B Description: Based on a record review and interview, it was determined that the vendor failed to maintain, for each group of children, a written record (hard copy) of daily attendance that documents the arrival and departure of each child in care as it occurs. Evidence: 1. The center did not have written documentation of the arrival and departure times for all of the children in care. 2. Administrative staff confirmed that there was not documentation of the arrival and departure times for all of the children in care. Plan of Correction: The vendor responded: A new daily attendance sheet has been developed that will be completed by the teachers so that we will ensure that the arrival and departure times are recorded on the daily attendance sheet.
Standard #: VENDSUB-000-031-B-1 Description: Based on a review of facility's emergency preparedness plan and interviews, it was determined that the vendor failed to ensure that the evacuation procedures included procedures to address reuniting children with parents or authorized person designated by the parent to pick up the child. Evidence: 1. The emergency preparedness plan for the facility did not include procedures for reuniting children with their parents or guardians. 2. Administrative Staff confirmed that the procedure for how they would reunite children and parents/guardians was not in the emergency preparedness plan. Plan of Correction: The vendor responded: The procedures for how we will reunify the children with their parents/guardians will be added to the facility's emergency preparedness plan.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information.
