|Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) Neal conducted an unannounced complaint inspection for the purpose of delivering findings for the above listed allegation. During this investigation, LPA observed children present in both the younger infant and the toddler classrooms on separate occasions. Child/staff ratio was also observed during nap time. LPA interviewed staff assigned to both classrooms. Facility was observed to be in ratio during hours when children were active as well as when children were napping. LPA advised director to be sure appropriate ratio is maintained at all times, which include during transitional periods when the children are waking up from naps and are active once again to prevent any potential health and safety risks to children and so teacher/child ratio per Title 22 regulations is always adhered to. Based on the interviews conducted, information provided and observations, the allegation is deemed unsubstantiated. A finding that the complaint is unsubstantiated means that although the allegation may have happened or is valid, there is not a preponderance of the evidence to prove that the alleged abuse occurred. No defficiencies were cited during this inspection. |
Exit interview was conducted and a copy of this report was given to the director, Sandra Freni.
