-Wet wipes were stored in bathroom cupboard.
-Table and chairs downstairs were clean and licensee has developed a schedule for cleaning the tables and food service routines.

CCLR s.16 (4)(b)
-There was no visible feces in the outdoor play area. Licensee has stated they have returned to using the pet policy schedule for keeping the outdoor play yard clear of feces, where they clean before the center opens and do another parameter check at the start of outside time. If this plan changes, please provide a written copy to licensing.

Items to be addressed:
The Licensee stated the fence in two areas will be repaired by their handyman, and the items near the fence that children could climb to more easily gain access to the neighbors yard would be removed.
-Two areas under the deck and one space above a gated area near the entrance to the basement door would be enclosed.
-One spot near the cement identified in the initial inspection, where there is a tripping hazard, would be filled with sand or some sort of soil.

CCLR s.17
-Under sink cabinet in the kitchen and the bathrooms were secure.
-The recycling box with cans were removed.
-The electrical outlet was covered.

Items to be addressed:
-In the bathroom, toilet plunger and sanitary napkin were on the floor, shampoo and other items were by the tub-side, and baby powder and other items were on the counter top in the bathroom.

CCLR s.39(1)
-Licensee has moved the coat area to a space near the play yard exit, and has put the gates inside and outside, in place to prevent children from leaving the supervision area.
-Licensee has discussed the plan for sitting while eating. Licensing reminded the Licensee of her plan to use the upstairs kitchen area for providing lunch and snacks, however if a child is in need of food or drink in between meal time they would be able to offer that in the downstairs area, after washing hands, and cleaning tables before and after food and drinks are served. Additionally, it was discussed that the Licensee wants to create a new plan for offering food and drinks, so that they are not always going up and downstairs. Licensee would need to submit a new plan to be reviewed by licensing.

CCLR s. 57 (1)(a)(b)(c)
-Files were complete for the 3 children in care today.

Items to addressed:
Some children's files, who were not in care today, were not fully complete at the time of this inspection. Licensee said all files would be complete and in one location after the weekend.

Licensee will continue to work on bringing the contraventions into compliance by date provided. Licensing will conduct another follow-up visit to review the remainder if items, once they have been addressed.

It was discussed that the Licensee was feeling supervision was challenging, and it was identified as the source of many of the challenges in meeting legislation. Licensee requested a meeting for the purpose of asking questions and taking notes, while not having to provide care as the sole caregiver.
