Child Care Facility Inspections
Child Care facility inspections are required by the state for licensed providers, whether it is a preschool, in home, Head Start, group home or a center.
Inspections will be given on an annual basis unless a re-inspection is necessary due to remodeling, construction, if the previous inspection found that the site did not conform to state guidelines or any other special circumstance.
A Lawrence County Health Department Environmental Public Health Specialist will inspect such facilities for the following:
- water quality
- food protection
- cleaning and sanitizing
- refuse disposal
- environmental hazards
- medicines and other toxic agents
