    5         (b) Require each private prekindergarten provider to notify
    6  the parent of each child in care if it is cited for a Class I
    7  violation as defined by rule of the Department of Children and
    8  Families. Notice shall be initiated only upon final disposition
    9  of a Class I violation. The provider shall notify the department
   10  within 24 hours of its intent to appeal the Class I violation
   11  issued and final disposition shall occur within 15 calendar
   12  days. In determining the final disposition, the department shall
   13  consider the entire licensing history of the provider, whether
   14  the provider promptly reported the incident upon actual notice,
   15  and whether the employee responsible for the violation was
   16  terminated or the violation was corrected by the provider. If a
   17  provider does not file its intent to appeal the Class I
   18  violation the provider must provide notice of a Class I
   19  violation electronically or in writing to the parent within 48
   20  hours after receipt of the Class I violation. Such notice shall
   21  describe each violation with specificity in simple language, and
   22  include a copy of the citation and the contact information of
   23  the Department of Children and Families or local licensing
   24  agency where the parent may obtain additional information
   25  regarding the citation. Notice of a Class I violation by the
   26  provider must be provided electronically or in writing to the
   27  parent within 24 hours after receipt of the final disposition of
   28  the Class I violation. A private prekindergarten provider must
   29  conspicuously post each citation for a violation that results in
   30  disciplinary action on the premises in an area visible to
   31  parents pursuant to s. 402.3125(1)(b). Additionally, such a
   32  provider must post each inspection report on the premises in an
   33  area visible to parents, which report must remain posted until
   34  the next inspection report is available.
