Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 2:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m. with the center director and assistant director. 75 children, ranging in age from four months through 11 years, were in the care of 14 staff. Children were observed eating afternoon snack, listening to an ABC book, having tummy time, and playing outside on the playground. Afternoon snack today was pretzel wheels, cheese slices, and water.
