|Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) Neal met with the Site Supervisor, Keith Murray for the purpose of conducting a Pre-licensing inspection of the School Age center. During this Pre-Licensing inspection, LPA toured and measured center indoors according to the facility sketch. Center is located at the Ralph Baker 21st Century Learning Center. The center consists of 3 rooms: the stem room/studio 7, multi-purpose room (MPR)/cafeteria and library/innovation studio. The stem room will be used before school, and the MPR will be used after school and for extra space. The library will be utilized when the other two rooms are unavailable. Center will operate Monday through Friday 6:00am to 8:00am and 2:00pm and 6:30pm. |
LPA observed age appropriate furniture, equipment, and materials. The rooms were observed to be clean, safe and free of any health or safety hazards. Telephone service was verified as well as adequate heating, lighting, and ventilation. Staff will use "Ring" doorbells for entrance that electronically notify staff of arrivals to the center. There are water fountains in the hallway outside the multipurpose room. Medications will be stored in a locked storage cabinet. Storage space is a room located on the right side of the MPR. Emergency backpack will travel with staff from room to room and be stored in a bucket. Staff restroom is located at the end of the hall to the right.
Furniture and equipment was observed to be in good condition, free of sharp, loose or pointed parts in all rooms. There is a moveable bin with a lid.
