In addition to the safety precautions for the physical space, other precautions are taken as well. For example:

  • Fire drills must be performed and recorded every 6 months
  • Emergency plan in case of disasters must be created
  • Every adult living in the family child care home must be finger printed and back ground checked
  • The child care provider must have CPR and First Aid certifications
  • The children’s files must be completed before attending; which require emergency contacts, alternate pick up designations, and vaccination records
  • The provider must record all children on a posted roster
  • Any unusual incident or change to the facility must be reported to licensing
  • NO one is to pick up a child without being designated by the family, prior to pick up, and having an ID

These are just a few of the licensing requirements!

Licensing performs random inspections and I adhere to all licensing requirements.

We love Under the Orange Trees child care! Ildi is a loving child care provider who is extremely patient and creative with kids. She meets kids at their level and encourages child-directed play. She is experienced in early childhood care and education. She has taught my son how to be kind and inclusive of others, how to communicate better and be thoughtful, and she has encouraged his creativity and learning. At Under the Orange Trees my son loves playing with the fun toys in the playroom and yard, helping with cooking activities or snack prep, the games they play, the creative activities, playing with the other kids, and he loves Ildi! It is a perfect warm, caring home environment for him. We feel so lucky to be there!
