|1) Annual random visit conducted by Licensing Program Analyst, Jason Jang. I met with the Director, Maricar Abasta-Castro. A tour of the facility was made and the buildings and grounds were inspected. All of the correct postings were on the wall. The sign in sign out sheet, first aid kit, snack menu, and fire drill log book were reviewed and found to be complete. Children and staff files were reviewed. Staff had a current CPR and first aid certificate. All staff had the proper vaccination requirements in their files. Licensee was reminded that anyone working at the facility must be fingerprint cleared prior to being in the presence of children, or an immediate civil penalty can be assessed. Also discussed: nutrition education; the new appeal process; and documents to be provided to parents/legal guardians. Exit interview was conducted and this report was reviewed with the Director. Licensee was provided a copy of their appeal rights. Notice of site visit was posted at the time of the inspection, and must remain posted for 30 days. This facility plans to provide Incidental Medical Services – IMS. For IMS information, see Evaluator Manual - Regulation Interpretations and Procedures for Child Care Centers Sections 101173 and 101226. The IMS plan of operation shall be submitted to the Licensing department.
