Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted between 10am and 12:30pm. There were 36 children present ranging in age from 18 months through six years old. There were seven teachers and two administrators present during the inspection. Children and staff records were reviewed. Children were observed in teacher and self-directed activities.
