Conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection 9:35-11:45am. Observed 43 children + 9 direct-care staff + 2 additional staff. Ratios were not maintained. Supervision was constant in all classrooms. Children were having story-time, dancing with disco lights, drawing, washing hands, eating a morning snack, and having indoor/outdoor free-play. Staff were actively engaged with the children, talking and playing with them, and leading activities. Infants were being held, fed, diapered, and were having play time on the floor. Each child brings their own food from home daily, and containers were labeled appropriately. The center was found to be very clean and well supplied with toys and equipment for the children. A sufficient number of staff were currently certified in First Aid/CPR, medication administration (MAT), and daily health observations (DHO). Annual child development training requirements met.
