Children's Environmental Health

Child care facilities in Yadkin County are inspected in accordance with 15A NCAC 18A .2800 "Rules Governing the Sanitation of Child Day Care Facilities". Facilities are inspected at least once every six months to ensure that basic sanitation standards are met. These standards include:

  • Proper hand washing and techniques
  • Approved water supply and wastewater disposal
  • Proper food-handling
  • Proper diaper changing
  • Approved storage of chemicals, medicines and supplies
  • Safe and clean facilities

At the end of each inspection, the facility receives a sanitation classification of superior, approved, provisional or disapproved. If a facility receives a provisional or disapproved classification, the operator and the Registered Environmental Health Specialist will discuss a corrective action plan to correct the violations with a specific time frame before re-inspection.
