Licensing Program Analysts (LPAs) Julia Placencia and Jason Jang arrived unannounced for a second complaint inspection regarding the allegation above, and met with Director Gauri Mahajan.

During the course of this investigation, LPAs conducted interviews with staff on 9/20/18, and parents of children in day care on 10/1/18 and 10/2/18. Documents were also reviewed and obtained on 9/20/2018. Parents interviewed deny they have observed staff not supervising children, but also admit they are not present in the facility all the time. Video of classrooms are deleted after 3 days. It cannot be proved or disproved that children were biting each other due to a lack of supervision.

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 unsubstantiated.
Unsubstantiated
