A Subsidy Health and Safety monitoring inspection was conducted on 3/21/2019 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. This inspection began at 10:40am and ended at 2:00pm. There were 11 staff with 54 children in 6 classrooms at the time of the visit. At the start of the inspection, children were observed painting, being read to and playing freely.
