An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed today. The physical plant, 5 staff files, 5 children's files, annual fire and health inspection, staff training, child nutrition, children's activities, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected between 1:15-3:50pm. There were a total of 45 children with 7 staff; all ratios were in compliance. For lunch, the children were served cheeseburger meatloaf, a wheat dinner roll, corn, applesauce and milk. The children were observed participating in circle time, learning about colors, reading books, listening to music and resting during naptime, listening to music. Earlier today, the center had the annual fire inspection and an evacuation drill was completed. There are no children with any medication needs at this time. The center was listed as a Subsidy Vendor. However, during the inspection, the Director called to have the vendor contract terminated.
