Comments:
Conducted an unannounced renewal inspection 1:10-3:00pm. Observed 9 children + 1 direct-care staff person. Ratios + supervision were in compliance. Staff was actively engaged with the children, sitting with them and providing instruction, and speaking to them in a kind and patient manner. Staff resolved a conflict between 3 children in a positive and teaching manner. Instructions were worded in a positive way and children were encouraged in all activities. Activities included: learning letters, endangered animals, coloring, puzzles, circle-time, and indoor free-play. Transition between activities was prompted by music playing and went smoothly with all children helping to clean up. According to the menu, snack today: crackers, cantaloupe, and apple juice. The classroom was clean, safeguarded appropriately, and well supplied with toys and equipment for the children. Medication management was in compliance. Required documents were posted.
