|A required increased monitoring inspection visit was made to the facility by LPA Patricia Pacheco. The facility file was reviewed prior to this visit. A non-compliance conference was held with the licensee on 08/30/16, regarding an absence of supervision violation that was cited on 06/07/16. |
The facility was toured and floor plans were verified. There was only one child in care with both the licensee and her assistant providing supervision. The items which could pose a danger to children (detergents, cleaning compounds, and medications) were inaccessible to children in a locked cabinet and laundry room with a high latch. The toys, floors, and other equipment appeared clean and safe. There is a working smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector and fire extinguisher in the facility. The yard is completely fenced. There is an in-ground pool in the backyard. The pool is surrounded by a wrought iron fence on two sides, the house on the third side and a 6 foot wood panel fence on the fourth side. The gate is self-latching and swings away from the pool. There is a waiver in place for the use of auditory alarms on all of the windows and doors that provide direct access to the pool and the conditions of the waiver were being met. Children records were reviewed. The licensee has current CPR and First Aid certifications (expires 09/15/19). A disaster drill was conducted on 02/26/18.
