|Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) Sabrina Martinez conducted an unannounced case management inspection for the purpose of ensuring that adult # 1 is no longer employed at the facility based upon a case closure letter from the Department of Social Services’ Caregiver Background Check Bureau dated March 23, 2018. |
Upon arrival, LPA Martinez was greeted by center director, Jessica Derby. LPA observed 37 children in care being supervised by 13 adults during today’s inspection. LPA verified that all adults present have obtained criminal record clearances and are associated to the facility. LPA also reviewed the sign in and sign out sheet to verify the census. LPA toured the facility and did not observe adult #1 to be present or working in the facility during this inspection. Per the center director, adult # is no longer employed with Bright Horizons and has never taught at the facility. LPA Martinez was provided with a written declaration.
LPA Martinez explained to the center director that the Caregiver Background Check Bureau has closed the criminal record exemption case because the licensee informed the Department that the individual is no longer associated with the facility. Therefore, the Department has closed the exemption case on the CBC system. The center director was reminded that the individual is prohibited from having contacts with clients and cannot return to the facility until he/she has obtained a criminal record exemption. No deficiencies were observed or cited during this inspection.
