Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was initiated today at 11:45am. The physical plant, 3 staff files, 4 children's files, annual fire inspection, children's activities, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected today. There were 15 children under the supervision of 3 teachers. During the inspection, children were observed working on spelling words, participating in a group activity and preparing to go outside to enjoy free play. Each child brings a lunch from home daily. The interactions between the children and staff were seen to be positive and constructive in nature. There are no children with any medication needs during program hours at this time.
