Two additional staff members were available and assisted, as needed. Three children's records and seven staff records were updated and/or reviewed. Two children's topical ointments, two children's medications and accompanying authorization forms were reviewed on this date. Safety equipment (first aid kits, flashlight, electrical outlet covers and radio), posted information (license, inspection documentation, weekly menu, emergency evacuation diagrams, emergency telephone numbers and classroom schedules) and available documents (emergency evacuation drill/shelter-in-place drill records, attendance records, local agency reports, insurance verification and injury reports) were observed/reviewed. The daily schedules accurately reflected the activities provided. The lunch served on this date included meatballs, broccoli, tropical fruit, bread and milk. Observed staff/child interactions were positive and supportive of children's development. The facility was observed to be clean and supplied with a variety of age/stage appropriate learning and play materials/toys. Program observation was completed. Activities observed on this date included: indoor learning and play (painting, stories, puzzles and letter "P" learning sheet); outdoor play; diapering, handwashing and restroom procedures; lunch; naptime; infant care and pick-up/departure of children.
