A. In order to determine continued compliance with standards during the effective dates of the license, the department's licensing representative will make announced and unannounced inspections of the facility or agency during the hours of its operation. The licensee is responsible for correcting any areas of noncompliance found during renewal or monitoring inspections.

B. All licensed child day programs and family day systems shall be inspected at least twice a year. At least one unannounced inspection of each licensed facility shall be made each year.

C. The department's representative may also make such inspections of any homes or facilities that are approved by the licensee for the care of children as one of the licensed services of the agency.

D. For any licensed child day center or family day system, the department may conduct such other announced or unannounced inspections as are considered appropriate.

NOTE: When necessary to respond to excessive workloads or to give priority to higher risk situations, the department may use its discretion to increase or decrease the frequency of announced and unannounced inspections made to licensed facilities during the year.
