|Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) Maddox met with the Owner, Mr. Hooks, and Administrator, Ms. Latricia Terrell today for the purpose of conducting a Pre-Licensing/Capacity Increase inspection. There are 2 other licensed components (license # 197492943 Infant and 197492945 School age). This Center is located in a strip mall and will operate seven days per week from 6 am to 11 pm. Center is licensed for 12 Pre-School age children at this time and wishes to increase the capacity to 36 Preschoolers. Fire clearance has been received and granted for this requested capacity. |
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 bathroom designated for the preschoolers that has 4 toilets and 4 sinks which will accommodate 60 preschoolers.
