*Serious Non-compliance*||In addition to all the changes made, I now review the DHS handbook weekly in order to ensure that we stay up to date with any changes made. Each staff member has been given a copy of the DHS regulations handbook to keep in their classroom for reference as well. We will continue to train and educate staff and new parents on regulations to ensure that proper safe sleep and infant care practices are met each day. Attached is a copy of the training handouts, certificates, training, and changes we have made to ensure the previous event does not occur again at Promise Learning Academy. All staff have completed the correct Safe Sleep training approved by OKDHS licensing. At the time I was unaware and had followed the previous directors form on the training, which was not DHS approved. Once notified it was corrected and all staff have completed the correct Safe Sleep training and certificates were submit to the case worker. In addition to Safe Sleep training, each staff has completed training on swaddling infants and watch the DHS regulations DVD received by from child care referral office.
In addition I had each of the infant teachers do training on lesson plans and activities for infants to improve and ensure the safety for the children during their playtime on the floor, bounders, and in their day-to-day activities. These trainings have helped staff gain knowledge on safe floor play and more one-on-one play with the infants. We also purchased an infant curriculum to help our staff with safe transitions, sleep practices, and activities for the infant classroom. We have currently added tow new staff members to our team which has opened up my (director) availability to check in with my staff more often throughout the day. It has allowed me to give breaks, extra training, and new teaching for opportunities for my staff. ||Substantiated
