Inspection/Report History

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.

Inspection Date Reason Description Status
2020-10-14 Renewal 3290.102(e) - Infant/toddler - no material less than 1 inch Compliant - Finalized

Noncompliance Area: On the outdoor play space, there was a plant bed that had mulch that was less than 1 inch in diameter and was accessible in an area where infants and toddlers receive care.

Correction Required: Pea gravel and other materials with a diameter of less than 1 inch may not be used in spaces where infants or toddlers receive care.

Provider Response: (Contact the State Licensing Office for more information.)
The immediate plan of correction for 55 PA Code Chapter 3290.102(e) is that I will not use this area any more. Moving forward I will use my upper deck for outdoor play. Pea gravel and other materials with a diameter of less than 1 inch will not be accessible in spaces where infants or toddlers receive care.
2020-10-14 Renewal 3290.131(d)(7) - Free from contagious/communicable disease Compliant - Finalized

Noncompliance Area: The file for child #1 had a health assessment that lacked a statement that the child is able to participate in child care and appears to be free from contagious or communicable disease.

Correction Required: A health report shall include a statement that the child is able to participate in child care and appears to be free from contagious or communicable disease.

Provider Response: (Contact the State Licensing Office for more information.)
I requested from Child #1's parent a health assessment that meets the state of Pennsylvania's criteria. Child #1 just moved back from Colorado to the area and did have a health assessment that did state she was cleared to attend Daycare/Schools & Summer Camps. The assessment lacked appears to be free from contagious or communicable disease. The parent provided me a copy of a new form filled out on 10/29/2020 stating that she is able to participate in childcare and appears to be free from contagious or communicable disease and at the bottom of the form the parent put in writing that Child #1 will not receive the flu shot due to our family beliefs. She signed it and printed her name. Moving forward I will make sure that any child entering child care from another state has the required form from the state of Pennsylvania filled out before attending child care so that this does not happen again. I did send via email on November 3, 2020 at 2:21 P.M. a copy of Child #1's health assessment with the note on the bottom of the form highlighted. I also included in the email all my plans of correction.
2020-10-14 Renewal 3290.131(e)(1) - Parent written verification from Doctor. Compliant - Finalized

Noncompliance Area: The file for child #1, a 3 year old, had an immunization record that lacked verification of the Influenza vaccination being administered within the last year in accordance with the schedule recommended by the ACIP.

Correction Required: The facility shall require the parent to provide updated written verification from a physician, physician's assistant, CRNP, the Department of Health or a local health department of ongoing vaccines administered to an infant, toddler or preschool child in accordance with the schedule recommended by the ACIP.

Provider Response: (Contact the State Licensing Office for more information.)
I spoke to the parent in regards to the 3 year old not having verification of the influenza vaccination at pick up time on the date of inspection on October 22, 2020.The parent informed me that due to family beliefs that her child would not be receiving this shot. She put that in writing on the corrected Health assessment form that I did send over via email on November 3, 2020 at 2:21 P.M. it was highlighted on the bottom of the form and states Child #1 will not receive the flu shot due to our family beliefs. The parent signed and printed their name. Moving forward I will make sure that I address the influenza vaccination and make sure that the proper documentation is provided if a child is not receiving a vaccination.
2020-10-14 Renewal 3290.151(a)(2) - 12 months prior to service and every 24 months thereafter Compliant - Finalized

Noncompliance Area: The file for staff person #1 had health assessments dated 11-24-17 and 12-2-19 that were over 24 months between assessments.

Correction Required: A health assessment is valid for 24 months following the date of signature, if the person does not contract a communicable disease or develop a medical problem.

Provider Response: (Contact the State Licensing Office for more information.)
I had a physical scheduled prior to 11-24-2019 and unfortunately my appointment got rescheduled by my physician's office. I took the first appointment that they could give me, which was 12-2-2019. Moving forward I will make sure that my health assessment is done in accordance to 55 PA Code Chapter 3290.151(a)(2) and that I give myself at least a two month window so this does not happen again.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Do not take your child here if they are experiencing stranger awareness - the provider is not not equipped to handle your child in this state. She quit on the first day and was in tears and shaking upon pickup. She told me there was "something wrong with my son" who has historically gotten comments on his jovial demeanor and has reached all of his milestones. She also mentioned that she was unable to take care of the other children due to my son's crying, which is extremely concerning. If my son was in pain, which she claims he may have been, she was unable to soothe him, and I was not contacted to come pick him up.
