Comments

At the inspection dated May 27, 2021 there was 4 children and 1 staff present. At this time, the Preschool and Group School-Age programs were not operating. Staff ECE qualifications and First Aid certification is current and posted. At this inspection the following contravention(s) were identified or no contraventions were identified. Action required by the Licensee is indicated in this report. As part of the Routine inspection, a Facility Risk Assessment Tool was completed.
The following needs to be addressed:
At the time of this inspection it was noted that children would have access to the electric kettle located in the hallway table. Should this inadvertently be used during times children are in care, the electric kettle should be relocated so children are not able to access. Staff (Manager) advised that the kettle is not used during times children are in care.
Should food items be stored in the fridge, a temperature reader should be acquired to ensure food storage temperature is between 0 - 4 C. Manager advised that the fridge is not used for children's food storage.
It was discussed that the Licensee should look into options for more permanent fencing and ensure any areas where vehicles park are fenced off. It may be helpful to focus on the outdoor play area that children access and look into options for fencing off this area as it is designated for Little Dreamer's use for outdoor play. As discussed, ensure any areas where children in care may access beyond the outdoor play equipment area is appropriate for use prior to accessing.
