|LPM Rebecca Varela and LPA Alice Juarez met with Deanna Ramos for an Informal Office meeting for a Type A citation issued on 02/09/2017. The citation was issued for Regulation #102423(a)(4) PERSONAL RIGHTS: Each child shall be free from corporal or unusual punishment. The Department determined that at least in one occasion, on or about 11/02/2016, the licensee spanked child #1. This presented an immediate risk to the child's health and safety. The Plan of Correction is: The licensee will immediately cease from using corporal or unusual punishment with the child day care children. By March 15, 2017 the licensee will provide Community Care Licensing with a written statement indicating her agreement to meet regulations at all times, as well as discussing the alternate proper discipline methods she will use to address the children's behavior.|
Per California Code of Regulations Title 22, Division 12, Chapter 3, no deficiency cited during today's visit.
