Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted this date. A total of 56 children with 8 staff present. When the inspector arrived, some classes had already transitioned to naptime. Some classes were in circle time having a book read by staff to them or an audio story played for the children to listen to. Medications on site, and were reviewed for authorizations and effective dates. Classrooms were decorated with Mother's Day themed artwork completed by the children. Tissue paper bouquets were on display in the halls. Heart pattern activities were also hung in the hallways for parents to see at pick up and drop off times. A total of 5 staff and 5 children's records were reviewed. CPR/First Aid/ MAT training and daily health training all verified with the staff presently on site. This inspection began at 12pm and ended at 2pm. Previous violation from the last licensing inspection was reviewed and corrective action was verified. Thank you for your cooperation today.
