Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
|Findings: Children's files were missing required information including required information on the emergency cards and there was no emergency card for one child enrolled. Other information missing from the files were the Health Inventory Part I and Part II and immunizations. These children's files were discussed at the time of the inspection and the items that needed to be obtained from the parent of the enrolled child. As discussed, ensure that this information is obtained prior to a child becoming enrolled. Submit a letter of correction showing these areas have been corrected.|
|Findings: There were children enrolled in care who did not have evidence of an appropriate lead screen being conducted.|
|Findings: The provider was unable to show proof that she had a written agreement for each child enrolled. Also, the provider did not have the discipline policy or the presence of pets in the home in her contract. The provider agreed to add this information to her contract.|
|Findings: There were children's files who were missing a receipt that the parent has been informed of the consumer education pamphlet or "The Guide to Regulated Child Care." The provider stated she may change her process of how she informs parents of this information by adding the website of how to obtain this information in her written agreement.|
|Findings: The provider has not been documenting or conducting fire/emergency drills. This requirement was discussed with her at today's visit.|
|Findings: Please ensure that emergency cards are updated as needed or at least annually. There was one emergency card that was not updated.|
|Findings: The provider transports children and does not have written permission to transport for all of the children enrolled. The provider stated she will add this information to her contract and have parents resign the contracts.|
|Findings: The provider failed to have her son obtain the CBC within five days of turning 18 years of age. The CBC was completed in 2/2018.|
|Findings: The provider stated that the front cover of the kitchen stove pulled off in December 2017. The Licensing Specialist observed two metal bars that were protruding outward from the stove, which is a potential hazard. There is concern that these bars that are protruding could poke a child in the eye or cause an accidental injury. The provider stated she will tape the bars back in place, so that they are secured to the front door of the oven. The provider is in the process of ordering a new front cover to the oven. There is currently a door with a protective heat barrier glass, however, the outer portion of the door is missing. The provider turned the oven on during the inspection to ensure that the front glass does not get hot. This glass had a warm feel when touched and was not hot; however, the oven was only on for approximately 20 minutes when the glass was touched. The provider stated she is in the process of ordering the replacement piece for the oven. She stated she will not utilize the oven portion of the stove until it is fixed. Once corrected, submit a photograph of the stove showing it has been fixed/corrected or a follow-up visit will take place.|
|Findings: There were two electrical sockets uncapped in the living room.|
