Based on information gathered, there are 13 children enrolled in the daycare, however schedules vary and there are many "drop ins." Licensee states she never has more than 12 children in care at a time. Based on available information, it appears facility is operating within capacity and ratios at this time. It is unknown whether there was a time prior to the two visits that facility operated out of ratio. Staff deny smoking in the home and there is no evidence to corroborate this. |
