The daycare has been in operation since 2009 and allows for 40 children up until the age of five. 

It passed its most recent inspection in April but was found to have been non-compliant in several areas of concern from past inspections. 

A December 2018 inspection found that staff hadn’t undergone proper training. It also found that sheets on cribs and play yards weren’t tight. Several toddlers were also running around barefoot.

An August 2018 inspection found that an infant teacher had not completed safe sleep training and that another staff member had not completed her training in May of that year. 

The day care has received violations for insufficient training and incorrect ratios of staff to children. An August 2016 inspection found that while the daycare’s vehicle was up to date, the driver’s physical examination had expired. 

In April 2017, immunization and physical examination records for 11 children were found to be outdated.
