|Licensing Program Analyst Emerita Curiel and Jennifer Brekke met with child care coordinato, Aronie Warren regarding the above allegation. Staff interviews were conducted. In addition, LPAs spend time in the facility and read the current temperature on the thermometer. LPAs observed staff and children, based on observation, everyone appeared comfortable. LPA observed thermometer on 10/21/16 and read 79 degrees. During todays visit LPA observed thermometer reads 75 degrees. Based on the information obtained, there is no definitive proof that supports the allegation. The complainant alleged that the facility failed to maintain a comfortable temperature for staff and the children, during business hours. |
Based on consistent interviews from the facility staff, a tour of the facility, and observations, LPA was unable to determine if the allegation is true. Although the allegation may have happened or is valid, there is not a preponderance of evidence to prove the alleged violation did or did not occur, therefore the allegation is inconclusive.
Exit interview conducted. Notice of site visit posted. Appeal rights were given and explained to the licensee.
