An unannounced renewal inspection was completed on 1/31/18. There were 60 children present from three months through five years in four groupings. Six children's records and five staff records were reviewed. One emergency/as needed medication was observed. The inspector arrived at the center at 9:45 am and departed at 2:00 pm. The children were observed during free times in the classrooms, during morning snack time, during lunch, and during nap. There was discussion with the program director about the following: new background check requirements. The program director will submit the results of the background check for the Board officer to the licensing inspector upon receipt redacting all personal identifying information. A renewed license may not be issued until this is complete.

The slide was within approximately four feet of the chain-link fence surrounding the playground. 2. There was a geo-dome climber approximately four feet high that did not have six feet of fall zone area surrounding the piece of equipment. There were three 2x2 timbers upright approximately eight feet tall within two feet on one side and within (approximately) three feet on the other two sides of the climber. There was a concrete sidewalk within three feet of the dome climber on one side. The climber did not have six feet of fall zone area around any portion of the climber.

Plan of Correction: The small slide will be moved to allow six feet of fall zone area around it. The large geo-dome climber will be moved to allow six feet on all sides. The mulch will be repositioned. The timbers in the fall zone area will be removed.
