|The following report below is an amendment of a previous inspection report provided on 1/8/2018 to reflect a change in findings of the investigation. |
Staff #3 was specifically mentioned in the allegations for not having clearance. LPA Lee asked the Director when Staff#3 was hired and she stated that it was May of 2017. Staff#3's association with this facility began in May of 2017 which was consistent with the Director's answer. No staff member was observed to be present without clearance and association in the preschool program during the inspection.
During the investigation it was also concluded that 3 staff members (#6,#7,and #8) that were observed to be in the infant care license on 01/08/2018 were not associated to the preschool program. There was enough evidence gathered during this inspection to conclude that these 3 staff members had also worked for the preschool license. Although the staff members were not observed in the preschool at the time of this inspection, the evidence gathered provides proof they did work in the preschool in the past.
Based on LPA's observations and interviews which were conducted and record review, the preponderance of evidence standard has been met, therefore the above allegation is found to be substantiated. California Code of Regulations, Title 22 are being cited on the attached LIC 9099D.
