Date Type/Purpose Corrections
2018-11-28 Periodic
Full Inspection
Plan: Ms. Rider stated she understands that neither of the teachers involved in the complaint may be alone with children or work together in the same room. Ms. Rider explained a different teacher was supposed to be in the classroom with the teacher who is not supposed to be alone but she did not make it clear to the teacher who was supposed to be in the room with the teacher who is part of the complaint. Because of this, both of the teachers in the complaint ended up being in the same room together. Ms. Rider had a different teacher go in the classroom with the teachers who are involved in the complaint. In the future, Ms. Rider is going to clearly communicate with the staff who is supposed to be in the classroom and that they are not to leave either teacher involved in the complaint alone or alone together in a classroom. Ms. Rider had the correct teacher go in the classroom while licensing was completing visit.
