|Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) Khadarian conducted an announced site visit upon receipt of a change of ownership application. There are 2 other pending applications on the same premises (x-reference license # 197492943 Infant and 197492945 School age). The facility is located in a strip mall and will operate seven days per week from 6 am to 11 pm. There are no bodies of water on the premises.|
The fire inspector has approved the capacity of 12 preschoolers.
Upon arrival, LPA was met with the applicant and the current licensee, Ms. Latricia Terrell. LPA was guided on a tour of the facility inside and outside. Upon entry, there is a large room that is considered to be the office space and was not measured into the capacity of the facility. LPA observed a "toy ambulance" placed in the office area that will be used by ill children to rest and for isolation purposes. The staff bathroom will also be used by sick children.
The preschool license will operate off of two adjacent classrooms. The larger room (to be used by the older preschoolers) was measured to be: (28.6 x 9.6) + (19.6 x 25.6) = 776.32 sq. ft ; the smaller room (to be used by the older preschoolers) was measured to be: 23.3 X 25.2 = 587.16 sq. ft. The total indoor space will accommodate 776.32 + 587/16 = 1363.48 / 35 = 38 children.
There is one toilet designated for the preschoolers that has 4 toilets and 4 sinks which will accommodate 60 preschoolers.
The outdoor space is completely fenced in from all areas of the property. There are benches and seats, basketball hoop, a play equipment and a monkey bar. There are cushioning material under the play equipment and the monkey bar.
