Observed Violations
PHYSICAL FACILITY, EQUIPMENT AND FURNISHINGS: 11160 - CCLR s.16(3)(a) - A licensee must ensure that the entire outdoor play area is (a) enclosed in a manner that is suitable for the age and development of children, and will ensure that children are free of harm.
Observation: GCC ( < 36 mos ) program observed using the 3-5 playground as the Infant/ Toddler playground was placed out of use due to a shipment of stored items wrapped in plastic and placed on pallets. Due to low enrollment the 3-5 children have been attending the 2nd licensed site therefore the designated playground is available for use. It is noted that space between the bottom of the fence and the ground in one area is large enough for a small child ( infant toddler ) to exit and in other areas presents risk of head entrapment.
Corrective Action(s): Ensure the outdoor area is enclosed to prevent risk of harm and or injury to children.Licensee was made aware of the importance of addressing the gaps prior to receiving the written report confirming immediate steps to remedy.

Observation: Staff observed exiting the outdoor play area carrying 1 child while 3 children remained seated at a picnic table in another outdoor play area.The staff was speaking with another staff inside the door frame. The staff could not visibly see the 3 children from where she was positioned nor would immediate response be possible should the children have required assistance.
